People who complain that bathroom stall doors don't go all the way to the floor. How am I supposed to know if it's actually in use? Are you actually saying trying to open the door when someone is inside would be preferable?
There's a solution for that:

IIRC Mo suggested the all the way to the floor design used in the UK has ... ventilation problems.

That's solvable with little flags tied to the slide lock. But I'm still WTF? Why in the name of Galt's green earth do people want to be completely isolated in a tiny box when they're evacuating their bowls? Like people wall off the commode in their homes. It's considered a feature! Seriously, I get that you want privacy. I personally could do with less privacy (and please lets start adopting unisex bathrooms) but what is the issue here? That strangers might get a glimpse of your panties down around your ankles? That's the embarrassing horror you can't abide? Really?

My freshman dorms had pony walls between the toilets but no doors, I think to discourage horny teens from fucking in the stalls, but the flaw in this plan was that the toilets were along one wall and the sinks, with mirrors, that people had to use to do not-poop-related hygiene and grooming activities, like shaving, and worse toothbrushing, were on the opposite wall. The sounds and smells are not pleasant. Just because something is natural doesn't mean it is fun to share. Even dogs who cheerfully eat their own shit still have the sense to look embarrassed when they're taking a shit in broad view.

But if you're going to do the closed WC thing, it should have its own vent fan intake and should preferably have a small wash basin inside so you don't have to open the door with a hand that may've gotten ... shitty. But the primary reason I'd appreciate one is to have the main bathroom as an airlock between the poopstation and the rest of the world.

All the way to the ceiling has ventilation problems. Poop smell rises.

Until I read the replies I thought he meant, "We need to talk about what an unflattering picture this is." I will never understand what the people today are horny over. When did this *gestures at above tweet* become more attractive than this *gestures at Hugh Laurie in Blackadder Goes Forth*?

He looks like fourth place in a Dan Bilzarian lookalike contest that Bilzarian couldn't be bothered to attend.
