I think a lot of easterners would say it helps build a sense of community - I guess it depends whether you want privacy or community.

I agree. I think it's also a cultural thing. It's considered very important to have a privacy fence in some neighborhoods around the metro area, especially, as I said, the somewhat older ones. People want these fences and they don't really know why.
