Of course by doing this you 1) never get security upgrades, and 2) 
eventually can't install software anymore, since the current versions 
starts needing newer libs.

I also did something similar (ran debian stable, doing my upgrades, 
though) for years, but switched back to a rolling upgrade (but not 
before gigs) model. ATM I'd rather handle problems once in a while, one 
at the time, and be able to work with new versions of the software I run.
