I love DocBlocks. When I meet developers who do not, or who dislike writing them, I get profoundly sad. Same thing when it comes to comments in code. I was once told that I write too many comments, and that I should not need them since my peers could read code just fine anyway. Sure, I said, and I can read Spanish just fine as well, but I would do a lot better if you threw in some English comments here and there.
