Poll: Do you publish in the NAR database issue, and do you read what others publish there?

The annual database issue of Nucleic Acids Research is now online. This year it contains a staggering 135 papers, which should be enough to keep all bioinformaticians busy over Christmas.

This makes me wonder how many of the readers of this blog have published in the NAR database issue (not necessarily this year), and how many of you actually read what others publish there. I have thus set up a highly unscientific poll:

The terms many, some, and very few are obviously somewhat fuzzy. As a rough guideline, I would define many as >10 papers per issue, some as 5-10, and very few as <5.
