How would people find out about the list? Googling "cohousing" doesn't bring it up -- maybe the page needs to have a little SEO added to it. https://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-l/ I see a link to a "listserv". What on earth is a "listserv"? Is that even a word? (I know what a listserv is, but it is technical jargon that most people won't recognize.) I think it could be added more clearly and more prominently to the cohousing.org home page.
