I agree. Personally, I CC. That said, I think that OC has significant deterrent value as stated in the article (the lion and hyena example notwithstanding). I CC because I personally don't want to deal with the hassles involved with OC. In the area where I live OC just isn't the norm. It's unusual enough that people feel compelled to comment/whine/rant, etc. (I OC'd when I first got my permit, then switched to CC.) I'm not too concerned with offending anyone, I just don't need the gratuitous hassle.
