It might be a bit selfish Dan, and I'll admit that, but when I was posting
aggressively I was looking to really boost my PHP skills.  Frankly I think
this list was a major contributor to rapid success in the industry, and I
always tell fellow developers to join the list if they're looking for a
similar boost.

Just for the record, my #1 favorite thread was the argument about php4 vs 5
