Indeed, a counter example is not surprizing. Is there a Hausdorff counter example?
A super Baire space (every intersection of denses sets is dense) is of the form S_D for some dense D and conversely for dense D, S_D is a super Baire space.
Is there any thing useful or outstanding about those spaces?
