Privacy vs. Neighborliness

From time to time i have seen porches that have some sort of divider and I’ve always wondered what type of message that is sending. I think this particular one looks quite nice but is it in the spirit of neighborliness? I can understand privacy measures taken in the backyard but I thought it was understood that the entrance to the home should remain barrier free. I suppose if the neighbors are particularly upsetting some measures may need to be taken. What are your thoughts?
