Remove tacks when placing implants?

After 33 years of placing implants, I have a simple question: Do you remove GBR/membrane tacks that are not loose or not easily accessed when placing implants? I have been taught by several speakers to leave the tacks and not raise the FTF [Full Thickness Flap] any more than necessary. In your practices, what do you do? What do you believe and why?
