The loos I used in India did not even have a flush, so with the memory of no flush in mind, I have to say all flushing, regular, even obsessive flushing, is fine by me.

If you live with anyone else, I think it's a social necessity. Consider how you would react if you came home and your wife/husband/roommate/trained monkey left a little "surprise" for you in the bowl. "Do unto others," and all that.

If one is worried about the waste of water, all of today's toilets are low flush—1.6 gallons per flush or less. This is sufficient for front-end business, and for most back-end business. If there are some stubborn stragglers who don't realize the party is over, another flush will do the trick. If the courtesy flush is only utilized a quarter of the time, that's still far less water used over time than with an older toilet.

i am also for courtesy flushing, but i have a different understanding. i have heard that courtesy flushing is a premature flush to eliminate the volatiles, especially when in a restroom with multiple toilets.

Courtesy flushing is a waste of water. If you are at home, all you need to do is light a match or a candle to kill any stench. Public bathrooms have the opposite benefit; namely that they smell bad all the time and that any smells you contribute are drowned out in the cacophony of stink. Regardless of the venue involved, there is no need to send another one to eight gallons into the sewer.

Sometimes you need to need to punish others with your stench. It gives an evil sort of joy.
