What are people doing with regards to the default web sites and admins that stop them? Just disable it altogether? Put it into maintenance mode? Unfortunately the SMEs/admins here disable it on some boxes but not all which leads to some frustration.
My personal opinion is that disabling it doesn't gain you much but some people have been doing it so long there isn't thought, just habit.
