Hey now!  The rules and administration of that particular list (for new

discredit a vast set of communities.

It wasn't my intention to discredit a vast set of communities but to offer an extreme in my view, but not in theirs, example of the kind of rule ladened "building of community" that may account for the lack of a general list on intentional communities. Perhaps it is because when the intention is to create very focused and thus narrow communities that a broader discussion is difficult.
