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