I thought this might be of interest to many of us. If it is old news I'm just recycling it!

Leave them alone. They wont be littering or harming the local environment.

All has not been well in Paradise. I've always found it very interesting that the original community split up rather rapidly (and have suspicions as to why). However - yes, they should be left alone, within reason.

The basic idea is lovely. But I'd hate it.

An interesting community - a sort of social anachy (not a perjorative term by any means). People should always be left alone, to the greatest extent possible, within their own desire for socialistion. Personally I prefer a society that includes things like law enforcement, rules, taxation (even!) and structure, but I know it's not the only way. Are they still there?

I think so - many of us buy our seeds from them!
