See lower down for Matt Facts.

To name a thing is to have power over it.  Thus half of beating your fear is naming it.  In the case of Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia it is the whole cure.  thus we bring you:

The great FEAR Project 

To node WELL on every type of fear.  /msg me if you would like me to put the square brackets around any phobias that have write-ups.  Let us name the fear and destroy it.

Additionally if you have not been credited with a good write-up on a phobia and feel you should msg me!

Also if you would like to "reserve" a phobia for your own write up then msg me and I'll note this. But that will not reserve the node it'll just ask people to write another.

How to use this homenode. Use your browsers find on the page (under Edit in IE6) to search the text content to locate both phobias and phobias with special meanings. There are an estimated 525 phobias here.

As it would seem that this type of list is frowned upon I will leave it here in my personal node.  

All WU should idealy include: alternative names, explanation... something to think about and moves to avoid! gotta re-write them all now......
