We all know what phobias are, but how many of us know what a "philia" is? And on top of that, there are contradictory definitions of it, depending on whether you embrace the Biblical connotation or the psychological one :-)

i assume you jest

of course i meant the "psychological" aspect of "phila", in contrast to "phobia"

are you this argumentative with all suggestions?

YES, I jest! I'm having fun with it. I had to look up "philia" to be sure it was even a word. Notice the smiley on the end of my post?

ETA: I have added it to the queue :-) Does this description work for you?

Where "phobias" are an excessive FEAR of something, "philias" are the opposite, an excessive or pronounced LOVE of something. For example, "hydrophobia" is fear of water, "Hydrophilia" is the opposite.

excellent! Might just add at the end of the description something like the standard lingo, "Show us what you fear or love in this challenge."
