I'm one of those who prefers the Hammett style to the Chandler. This isn't to say I dislike Chandler, just that I prefer Hammett.

I mention this because my impression, speaking as a particular Hammett fan, is that Chandlerians FAR outnumber Hammettians (can we think of something else to call them if this thread continues?), particularly in the PI field.
