In many instances I would view this question as a good one simply because I think that traditions, which many who ask this same question might also view the use of 'use strict' as a pragmatic tradition for which there is no real good reason to use it other than 'everybody else does it', should be questioned now and then. However, it has been stated many times past and now present (again) the purpose of use strict in all its glory (tm).

Clean coding practice not only helps you but it helps those who maintain your code after you. If 'use strict' complains about something, fix it! Don't just stop using strict :). There is a reason such tools are available to us to use. Alas, to each his own. I methodically make use of the use strict pragma and I am grateful that it is there for me to use.

If there is something specifically in your code that you don't want to use strict for then turn strict off for that bit of code and then turn it back on afterward :). I'd make sure I would comment why I am turning it off, though. That could be very useful to the maintainers.

Anyway, that is my $.02 cents. Thanks!
