I think it's worth it for several reasons:

1. It is quite likely that some others on the list produce paint jobs below
the norm (I would say that _I_ do...) and people like that (me) might very
well look at your stuff and say "cool if I try this technique, that's what I
can expect".

2. People who do produce "above the norm" might be nice enough to offer
helpful hints. (It continues to amaze me how simple some things are once
you know how...)

(OK that's only TWO reasons... :-)
