I'm gonna' have to agree with Alex here, insomuch as context and 
content are important factor here.

With that, there's a distinct line between growing from an open 
exchange, and divulging critical information- insomuch as I'd rather 
not print a map of my home layout on the internet as well, less some 
waco I don't know use it for a purpose which would displease me, for 
lack of a better word.

But then again, once someone has entered the front door of my home, 
there is a lot of common knowledge about how it works, (how to walk up 
stairs, open doors, etc...), and some of it worth sharing loudly- (like 
the fact that our toilet flush is on the BACK of the toilet, which 
confuses a surprising number of people... :)

Guess we'll see what happens with these diagrams- lots to be learned by 
viewers, and perhaps lots to be learned by the posters <g>.
