Is this so you increase traffic to your site? What other reason could you possibly have for this?

eh no.
i posted it here because it took quite a lot of formatting to get the list in plain text format. so maybe other users will find it useful to populate dropdownlists and databases. i will certainly refer back to this article myself in the future.
