Similarly, when the Naturist Society poses as Rule #1 that people at DCHS respect each others' privacy, some of the responders here are really clutching at straws to mutilate that rule into a distinction between the pools themselves versus the surrounding areas. The core and very focus of the Naturist Society's rules for DCHS are the pools; if the Society meant that no privacy should be respected in the pools (!) but only in the areas outside the pools, the Society itself, in drafting the rule, obviously would have explicated such a stretched and tenuous distinction.

The Naturist Society does not write venue-specific rules. They only have a generic set of guidelines for nude beach etiquette. http://www.naturistsociety.com/resources/NewBeachEtiquette.html

Presumably you are referring to a pamphlet prepared by the Deep Creek Volunteers, which includes those etiquette guidelines, as the DCHS environs is a naturist setting akin to a nude beach. "Respect other people's privacy" is the first bullet point, but it never refers to a "Rule #1." The pamphlet includes The Naturist Society logo because Deep Creek Volunteers was an affiliate, like a local chapter. DCV used to meet monthly, but as far as I know it is more of an informal organization now.

You claim to know the writer intended "respect other people's privacy" to mean that you can exclude other people from using the pools. However, you have already received clarification from one of the leaders of DCV:

DCHS is a public place and many people use the hotpools, single or otherwise, and the pools are available for soaking anytime ( day use area ) which is not trumped by couples and their private romantic interest.

I appreciate all the responses, even though some tidbits have been real stretches or downright silly. For example, it is pretty silly to claim that kissing is "sex" or that it is not "family friendly" to kiss in front of children -- at least if the kissing goes no further than just kissing and does not get too heavy or passionate.

I did not say kissing=sex. There is a wide range of behavior between innocuous hand-handing and blatant intercourse, and somewhere along this spectrum things escalate to inappropriate sexual behavior. Your words in an earlier post were "kissing and caressing, enjoying the silence or soft whisperings between lovers." Forgive me for interpreting that to mean something inappropriate to do in the presence of children.
