Low country boil

I'm doing a low country boil for a bunch of friends tonight and I know how to make it but I got to looking at other recipes online and everything I've found doesn't add salt. I've always added at least a cup and probably a fair amount more for my boils. I always do large batches at least 10 lbs or more of shrimp + the fixings with it. So am I the only person who adds salt? I've never thought of it as salty and it seems like the potatoes need the salt. Do you add salt to your boils?
