Oh excellent, my copy came from a gated community.  I asked one of the  
authors if I could pass along a copy.  He just provided me with this  
quicker link:


Every time somebody uses the work community, religion, relationship it  
makes my teeth hurt; so I was surprised to find something that pleased  
me to read.
That paper references a lot of obviously hard won models of what  
community is, so now I'm going to have to go read a mess of stuff.

I find it's amazingly rare to find anything about community that isn't  
moronic, simplistic, or romantic.  Or worse argues that community is  
just another victim of modern life.  I think quite the contrary that  
the net is a typhoon of community building.
