    Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.

    If you live in a suburb with ridiculously low crime-rates, it's day-time, and you're at home with several people, and still feel the need to have your doors locked for safety, I'd probably call you paranoid.
    Reversely, if you live in the inner-city, in an apartment, and don't lock your door, regardless of time and who's with you, I'd call you a risk-taker.

    There's a time and place for everything.

    Why wouldn't you lock your doors? If people want to visit, that's what knocking/doorbells are for :P

    Are you an idiot? How will a smoke alarm go off when there is no smoke?

    They can still do that, even if the door is unlocked though =P
    If a door is closed, the polite thing to do is to knock or ring the doorbell, regardless of whether the door is locked or not.

    Personally I think that living somewhere you need to lock your doors would be a miserable existence.
    I do live at the opposite spectrum though, I don't even know if we have keys for our doors, and I know we don't have keys for all of them.
    However, if you want to fly the 150 miles in a small aircraft capable of landing where I live and are confidant that the 130lb St Bernard that stands nearly 6ft tall when barking on his hind legs will lick you instead of biting your head off, if you are convinced that a village of people who survive from hunting and fishing would let a stranger poke around, then you are welcome the years supply of canned food in my basement.

    Haha well most of my friends act like they live there still. The bulk of them did at one point or another and are just as much friends with my family as they are with me.

    I go by the rule of if I don't have to tell Elly you're cool, you don't have to knock haha.

    Our family always locks the front/back/basement/garage doors, even if we're home. Sometimes we leave the backdoor unlocked, but that's only if we're using the backyard. I don't know anyone in my neighbourhood who leaves their door unlocked. o-o

    When I'm at my uni dorm, I always leave the door unlocked while I'm in. I'll only lock it when I'm in the shower or sleeping.
