Toilet lid up or down when you're finished?

Toiletfilter: Up or down? And before you answer, I'm not talking about which way to hang the toilet paper. (Lift the lid and come inside.)

OK. You've done your business, any kind of business. See the toilet lid? What do you do with it? What are you supposed to do with it? Me, I like closing the lid. Whoever uses the toilet next—male or female—must make a choice to either lift the lid and the seat, or just the lid. And besides, leaving the lid up—even if the bowl is spotless—just doesn't seem right. What's the lid there for, if it's not meant to be used as a lid? (I just got read the riot act by the woman who gave birth to me 30 years ago this very day for closing the lid and not assuming that the next person to use the toilet might not remember to look at the damn toilet before she sat down.)
