To GMPC or not to GMPC

Just curious, how many GMs out there run a GMPC, i.e., an NPC that's essentially a PC for the GM, who gets equal shares of XP/rewards/whatever, that is part of the party?

For those who don't, is there any particular reason why not?

For those who do, what do you get out of it above and beyond simply running the game?

For those who have played in games where the GM ran his/her own PC, was it a good/bad experience?
