"Spammer" is not the correct word, but Troll is.... I agree, all houses have at least 2 doors. And how is the guy able to post this without getting inside to use his computer? Granted, he could be using a public computer or a neighbors, but by the time he posted this, he could have gone to a hardware store or locksmith for advice and tools..... Or crawled into a basement window, or something. Plus, the lock generally can not be removed from the outside. The screws are always inside.....
