I can certainly see why someone would prefer not to have complete strangers come to their house to pick up items. Unless I was
selling a really large item where the postage would exceed, let's say $50.00, I see no compelling reason to allow people I don't
know to come to my house. I have two small daughters at home (3 and 7), and live in a somewhat isolated area, so why should I do
anything that even marginally jeopardizes their safety? Sure, I may be paranoid, but a schmuck? Get serious.
