Shower Curtains: Long or Short?

A while back I blogged about fabric vs. plastic shower curtain liners. Maybe I am over thinking the bathroom, but recently a related subject came up while chatting with a friend-- how long is a shower curtain supposed to hang?

In my opinion, shower curtains should never touch the floor, or be as close as shown in the photo above. In general, bathrooms are small damp rooms so the area should remain fairly sterile, clutter free, and light on fabric. The idea of a fabric curtain hitting the floor creeps me out because it will invariably get wet and possibly moldy over time.

My friend reasoned the opposite point of view, saying that the base of most tubs are so ugly (think plastic) that it's always better to cover them entirely with a pretty curtain.

So I ask you, readers, what's your point of view?
