In my years of visiting InfoAge, "props" on doors seems to be the method 
of choice. It was mentioned recently, that an old bubble iMac has been 
used for years to prop open a door. (InfoAge is a large site with many 
connected buildings.)

A simple response. Why not fix the doors, so they can be opened from the 
outside without prop-ing them? Either better locks, or fix the jamming, 
or better "props" which still seal the door, or add a doorbell to fetch 
help. And post a sign inside the doors to enforce your rule. Such rules 
are reasonable - fire code for instance - but it's also reasonable to 
accommodate your guests.

If this is a serious enough issue to post a public request about it; it 
was worth my attention to respond thoughtfully, to suggest the problem 
be solved.
