Should I leave my pilot light running when I am not using the stove/fireplace?

During the fall and winter months when the fireplace is most in demand, even though electronic ignition systems allow for the turn off/on of the pilot with ease, in our climate it can be very risky to let the unit sit stagnant in regards to cold weather and increased moisture which enter through the fresh air portion of the venting at all times. Don't forget, without your pilot light the inside of your unit is the same temperature as the outside! Over exposure to these temperatures can cause the pilot to seize and fail when you really need it the most.
