I for one completely understand where C75 is coming from.

So do I. It's all about NOT living in a goldfish bowl. I'm certainly not doing anything untoward in my house, but still don't want people gawping in all the time. That's why we have vertical blinds; they let the light in and still provide a good level of privacy.
We thankfully haven't had problems with our immediate neighbours, but the house behind us installed a trampoline, and for the whole of one summer we had to put up with the seemingly constant screaming of kids on it. A peaceful summer in our garden it was not. Had that trampoline been close to our house it would have driven me nuts. Thankfully the novelty seemed to wear off after one summer and we never had any more problems.
