Some people just need to lighten up. Over the years I've seen many 
issues that "waste" a lot more resources than this.  If you see shit in 
the toilet a person who flushes uses resources far more efficiently than 
some jealously constipated individual who opens up an investigation to 
punish the person who left it there.  People who complain about a little 
innocent fun are akin to those in an office who measure the length of 
pencils every day to make sure they aren't excessively wasted.
