Remember the talk about Rohan Gilkes Innclusive? I signed up for it and listed one of my places. It's not quite a finished working site yet, and it's copied to be very much the Airbnb experience. I had some questions and used the chat button to talk to someone, and ended up talking directly to Rohan. He was very happy to chat and let me know that they were working very hard on having everything up and running in a few weeks. He will be in the New York area in a few weeks and suggested that we get together for a longer chat (after I told him I have 15 listings). Of course they are very interested in building the database and are actively seeking listings.

I haven't signed up on it -- but I would be very interested to hear how it goes using that platform. One thing that is very much a turn off for me is the rule that if you decline someone, you cannot then rent the place to anyone else for the dates that you declined the guest for. I think that's unreasonable. It essentially penalizes hosts for declining anyone -- which should never happen. Particularly since many guests inquire or even make reservation requests who are not suited for our place or who have indicated they will not follow the rules.

Ha ha Grace -- it isn't a bug, it's intentional!! The whole point of InnClusive is that he wants to FORCE hosts to be inn-clusive. Sounds about right, hmmm??? (NOT!)
Create lots of freedom peace and joy for the guests, who in some cases are complaining of discrimination, by applying force to hosts, pressuring and squeezing hosts to accept guests "or else"!!!!
Something is wrong in fairness-and justice-land.
And BTW I dont' think a host who feels pressured to accept someone as a guest, is really extending them a genuine heartfelt "welcome" -- the hospitality involved is not legitimate if the host feels forced to accept the guest.
Here's a video made by Gino (who's traveling around the country interviewing hosts -- if you want to be interviewed just let him know!) which shows why I would not use Innclusive. They dont' trust hosts with a guest's name and photo -- which I think is very offensive.
