    It seems you're presuming things about persons using 
the buzzer. How many people who use the buzzer should be 
let in? Seems like "most", to me, based on the people 
I've seen come in that way. 

    How many people shouldn't? How can anyone say? Who 
knows who might "come around" to a hacker's head? 
    And if they don't? What's bad?
