Do you putt with your golf glove on?

I used to take it off between shots like listed here. Partly due to the feel thing, but mostly from Georgia heat causing sweat-drenched gloves. But then over this last winter I just sort of stopped taking it off - quite by accident. I found I like not having the task of on / off / and keeping track of the glove all the time.
Also found that instead of losing feel on and around the greens, I actually felt better with it on. Maybe because I hit so many shots with it on? Including the range and such. So now I mostly put it on and leave it on. Slightly better tan on the right hand. And the Georgia heat is still a problem. So I keep an extra or two hanging on the strap of my bag and just swap for a new one about half way through.
I wear a glove to improve my grip on full swing shots. For that reason, i only wear it for full shots. I don't wear my glove on putts or chips, because it's not necessary. Removing the glove also tends to keep it dry in the summer heat and helps extend it's lifespan, so I remove it after every shot too.
I do pretty much the same. Definitely do not wear it putting or with simple short pitches/chips, and I take it off** between all other shots.
**OK, not exactly ... I usually don't take it all the way off, just un-velcro it and peel it back off my palm. It's not so much for the life span of the glove (they die of holes in the thumb before anything else anyway) but rather to avoid a one handed farmer tan. :)
I leave it on, partly due to the reason I have a touch of dermatitis on my hands, and when I play golf, the grips on my clubs rubs my right index finger and causes it to split, then occasionally bleed, if its very warm, I may take it off between shots when playing with 2 or more people, but usually, it stays on... And my putting is okay really and no where near the biggest problem of my game! :)
I currently never wear a glove for any shots but when I first started I wore one all the time (putting included). Truthfully, I can't tell a difference in "feel" or my performance. I stopped wearing one because of the amount of sweat trapped inside the glove and the seams on the fingers of the glove became irritating.
