I respect the problem with dirty. I'm allergic to dust mites, and so have to avoid most couches unless they're made out of leather. I want to get rid of the couch in my own apartment for that reason.

But I don't think they encourage sleeping in the space. People sleep on the desks, in chairs. I think sleeping is a cultural problem.

Peace,
Tao
