What spark plug to use?

I am curious as to what brand of spark plugs you guys are using. I use to always buy Bosch platinum, but now I see there are about 50 different plugs and Bosch platinum seem to be the cheap end of the spectrum now. Is it actually worth spending $6 a plug and is there any major difference in performance?

Do a poll and more then half (i think) will say Motorcraft Platinum. That's what i use.

*LOL, do a search first cause i don't know if a poll has been done.

**edit....cause i was told to use them.
