This has been bugging me for a long time. What does the word faq1 mean, anyway? It hangs in my throat like an errant syllable from the Aflac duck, and I think the term is completely undiscoverable to a new user.
Changing the link name to help
(or New users read this or Read Me or pretty much anything except faaaak)
...would make the link more discoverable, and perhaps increase the chances that a new user might actually read it before someone tells them to "Read the faq."
Instead of "Frequently Asked Questions" (does anyone actually ask these??), the page should be titled, "How This Site Works."
1. Yes, I do know what the word actually means.
