IMO,

Free climbing with one or two pieces per biner... gates in, opening high.

Aid climbing... gates out, opening low.

YMMV.

The only true ethical debate in climbing.

Gate in.

This appears to have been discussed elsewhere on the interweb before:

I prefer gates in as I find it to be less faff to get the gear off the harness. If I put something back mid route it tends to be with gates out as it is easier to clip on

I have a certain partner who(when we swap leads)just grabs the sh#t and throws it on his harness any which way.No thought to it,doesn't care,"Whatever,just give me the gear" type guy.He's climbed all over the globe and has a lot of impressive ticks under his belt.He's still above ground and still climbs this way.It's actually quite funny to watch('til someone loses an eye). :-0
