Baby Registry Etiquette

Just curious where everyone stands on this: Do you put basic essentials like diapers, diaper rash cream and nursing pads on your lists?
I do, partly out of need to feel completely organized, and also because I thought that this is how it's done. Also, I know I get a discount with Babies R Us on anyhting that's not bought off my registry, so I figured I wanted to put it all on there.
I occasionally lurk on the Baby Canter forums, but I generally don't like the amount to aggression and just plain cruelty I keep seeing on some of those threads. Yesterday a woman had posted disappointment that not many people had bought presents off her registry, and there were about 30 responses calling her pathetic, greedy, etc. Someone asked her how dare she throw a baby shower and expect presents and I'm thinking, "Wait, what? Is it not a custom to bring a present with you when you attend a shower?"
But anyway, my question really comes down to: Do you just put cute things like clothing and wash cloths on your registry, or the actual logistical necessary stuff, ie diapers, etc. ?
