neutral  xxxCMJ_Trans: OK for DORMITORY TOWN not OK for "bedroom community" - sounds like a giant orgy

  -> well, it's not my fault they call it this way :-)

agree  Rachel Fell: "bedroom community" isn't used in UK - dormitory town is - or commuter town, as you've added!

  -> Thank you!

agree  James (Jim) Davis: Being from the UK I had never heard of a "bedroom community" which sounds like a gigantic.... However the references are very convincing. Dormitory is obviously UK only and vice versa.
