Yes Sir ... used one last Saturday. can post later today when at other PC. Really the only filter i use when i use one.
that is unless i know i will be beach side at night - i might throw on a UV.

Sometimes. I use my ND filters more than my polarizer

Nah...when it's too bright for shutter and ISO limits, I just stop down.

I used to use one all the time when I was shooting landscapes years ago...doesn't really leave my bag any more. Been meaning to dig it out for a shot once in a while though.

Hmmmm, I've been thinking about this too. Filters take about as much time to put on as a lens change. It's one reason why I've been reluctant to use one. Are there any benefits besides anti-flare/anti-glare and UV protection?

^ NDs and CPs can be quite beneficial, but not really for those reasons and not as commonly in wedding/event work. You'll see some nice flash work with big NDs if you look around.

Marumi polarizer on Tokina 12-24 @ 13mm

You do have to be careful how you use them. Shoot at 90 degrees from the sun, otherwise the sky color will vary. Does vignette a bit @ 12mm but fixable in post.

I do use CP when I take landscape photos, extremely useful.

It becomes impractical given the fast pace of weddings. I tried once but I rarely had time to rotate the filter to get the perfect angle.

So I stopped using it for weddings. The result is still good w/o CPL. Here is one shot from a recent wedding:
