Do you throw your t-shirts in the dryer?

Now I know we tend to be very fussy about clothing, but how do you guys dry your t-shirts? I used to hang dry them, but now I've started to throw them in the dryer (despite all of them saying dry clean only). Unfortunately this has resulted in some considerable shrinkage. Dry cleaning as per the tags usually recommend just seems like such complete overkill.

I just feel like hang drying t-shirts is such a pain in the ass, especially when i paid $20 for them (even if they retailed for $150 or what-have--you). You have to separate them from your regular laundry, take them to a place to hang them where they won't drip on the hardwood floor, assemble them nicely on the rack etc. Then when they're dry, they always get wrinkled and linty so I have to spend time ironing and delinting them with a clothes brush.

T-shirts should be simple and unfussy, but then I experience sadness when my favorite t-shirt becomes mid-rift baring. I've tried sizing up, to account for shrinkage, but then it becomes a chancy proposal to determine if the shirt will shrink properly.

I tend to dry them in the dryer, I have never experienced effects particularly devastating.
