I spent about an hour and twenty minutes browsing this site. At first I didn't
think the material warranted much appreciation. However, as I checked the other
links on the page I found that there was decent information on phobias. I would
not consider this to be a high quality site, however. The references are well
noted. I think that the site would offer some learning, maybe as a beginning to
phobias and the different phobias listed. The author does tell you in the
beginning that some of the phobias are named by people that have no significant
background to do so. There are also phobias that are listed several times with
the only exception being the name of the phobia. To me this site shows that
there is a significant need to get control over who names a phobia and put an
end to multiple names of the same phobias.

Perhaps the biggest plus from an educational stand point would be that there is
an entire list of phobias in one place versus having to find them separately.

Technical Remarks:

First time users would find it easy to browse and there are no medical
terminology that the average person wouldn't understand.
