    We dodge the question by keeping the lid down, too.

    For a man it is common courtesy to put the lid back down on the toilet. I think that picture is hilarious by the way!

    Frat houses don't need to worry about this problem!

    Down!! At our house we always close the lid before we flush anyhow, because I heard that particles and germs can spray up to six feet out of the toilet. Pretty disgusting.

    My man is so good about putting the seat down - 99% of the time. I've never had to ask, he just does it.  When he accidentally leaves it up, it actually makes me smile. It's a comforting sign that there's a man in the house.

    Down at night, anway -- I sat in an open toilet late one night when both part sof the lid were up. Not fun to clean up at 2 AM.

    Everything down all the time... seat and lid both.  Just simpler and more logical that way.  Cats don't fall in, kids don't throw stuff in, I don't drop things in, and nobody has any nasty surprises in the middle of the night.

    Oh, and if you have a dog, you don't have to hear that very alarming sound of the dog drinking out of the bowl!  UGH.

    Always leave it down when finished with the restroom.  Do you leave the lid off the trash can?  No.  You always close the toilet.  It has a lid therefore when not in use the lid should be shut.  Why else does it have a lid?  It was designed to be shut.  Not to mention that it is not sanitary to have it open.  Like I said - if it has a lid - then shut the lid when not in use.
    Name one other thing people leave open?  Car door?  Refrigerator? Peanut Butter? Toothpaste?  No.  Then why the toilet unless you are lazy & unsanitary?
