Default Are you a yanker or a safe remover?

I have found there are two types of USB users- those who safely remove everything, and those who just yank it out of the computer. Which are you?

edit: With rare exception, I go through the Safely Remove exercise with everything...

Actually come to think of it I always safely remove drives- thumb drives, cameras... I have locked machines up yanking those, my PC's don't respond to change that well I guess.

but I've got no qualms yanking a mouse out for some reason. huh... maybe a IT guy can tell me if I'm crazy?

I didn't know there was a "safe" option. Guess that makes me a yanker.
