Do you add salt to boiled water for pasta?

I use oil in my water. I use much less water when I cook my pasta than the mainstream and I never end up with a sticky blob of noodles. After straining they always have just enough starchiness for the sauce. I also temper my water with sauce. Every one loves it. Maybe Emril is on to something here. I say what ever works for you personally is the way to go.
