It occurs to me that one reason this type of thread gets so heated is because people really want very simple answers to incredibly complex questions.

It's really tempting to haul out the "never" and "always" hammers, or stoop to impugning others' motives, because that's a lot easier than really listening to someone else's points, or than carefully enumerating your own reasons for preferring the solution you prefer.

And when it comes to scenario-type questions, most of us tend to visualize our own houses and our own neighborhoods, forgetting that other people's circumstances -- and thus the scenario they're picturing -- may be very different from our own.

Just musing, appropos of nothing much.
