Taking ukemi from your instructor

if this week's poll is an indicator, about a third feared for their safety taking ukemi from their instructor. Can i ask, were you serious in your answers? how did you interpret this question? While in my dojo we might joke about the 'value added' throw this or that instructor has, or sadistic joy in the pin, we are not serious about it. Taking ukemi for the instructor is a gift to the uke...what kind of instructors lack the control (of technique, of themselves) that students fear the ukemi?
