Not 101 reasons, but tries to explain "why".

    It's a very tip top explanation for someone who already believes... I was thinking a bit of propaganda for the person who reads it and thinks "yeah yeah, but what's in it for me?" - some actual pratfalls that happen[|ed] to actual people who didn't use strict. My suspicion of strict was that it was for perfectionists, people who didn't work by the 80:20 rule. I had to make a shed load of mistakes to realise it was the exact opposite, some of which might be worth documenting as cautionary tales.
