Great point.

The TransNexus of Ralph and Tanya is very flexible, and this is what I
really like about their extropian community, as well as Freeland Nexus (the
"tent" surely will stand out in history as being the extropian fun wild
party alternatives of the late 20th Century!)

One of the joys I experienced over many years of traveling was the different
types of communities I lived in. I think the ones I really learned the most
from, and had the most fun were the communities where there was a sense of
respect for others' views.

Thus the poem that Michael Butler posted a couple of days ago is noteworthy:
to enjoy liberty, but not at the expense of another. When we think of
models for living arrangements, an important ingredient is not only the
world-views of the individuals, but also the manner in which they interact.
