Dishwasher Loading - Silverware Up or Down?

I never realized there was a debate about this, but I've heard this can cause arguments in a household.

Some say one method is cleaner than the other.  Others say one method is cleaner and safer.

What's it like in your house?

Is it just me, or does this thread make you think of spooning with Clive?

Does the dude who voted "other" leave them lying loose and flat in the top rack?    Huh?

I used to do all handles down except point/sharp knives, but then got married to someone who is way less anal retentive about that kind of stuff, and decided it wasn't a hill to die on. Now the randomness is dependent on who loads the dishwasher. I still do handles down, it's my silent protest.
