Would you really teleport?

The other day I caught a litte bit of "alien history" on the history channel. It was really just an examination of sci-fi ideas, but still pretty interesting.

I saw the bit on teleportation and decided I would never, never teleport if given the oppurtunity. Shocking, since I used to yearn for a teleportation device!

The premise is that teleportatoin just makes a copy of a person from all their atoms that they've just scanned, but in order to prevent rampant cloning they vaporize the person. This doesn't sound safe to me! But it does make one wonder why everyone on the old Star Trek shows get upset when someone dies. They can just teleport in the last copy of the person.
