Ann, I'm totally in sync with your etiquette list. About the only thing I would add is a reminder to those who request a tour or overnight accommodation that THEY ARE ASKING US FOR A FAVOR, they are not booking a hotel. We're volunteering our time and we have a right to say "no," FOR ANY REASON AT ALL. We don't OWE you. (I recently had an experience with an enthusiastic person who continued to call or email me every two days for about two weeks requesting a multi-day stay; she never gave me her last name, any information about her other than "I really want to talk to you and visit your community" and continued to be vague even after I left return messages asking for more information. You can imagine how enthusiastic I was about meeting this person...she came across as high-maintenance and demanding and I had NO interest in helping her out AT ALL as I was feeling harassed! And I am a pretty friendly and accommodating giver of tours! She finally backed off after I gave her very clear feedback that she was NOT making it easy for me to WANT to meet her!) ------------------------------ Eris Weaver, Graphic Facilitator & Group Process Consultant Founding member, FrogSong cohousing in Cotati, CA eris [at] erisweaver.info . 707-338-8589 . http://www.erisweaver.info "On days when you have no ideas at all, the best thing you can do is start doodling."
