I couldn't agree more and must exclaim that a FAQ is quite often much better
written then I could do. Its a time save but it needs maintenance.

Here the idea: We need a sort of artificial intelligence program which
filters our NTLK msgs and passes them thru a neuronal network or whatever is
capable of extracting information from blahblah. Then this program would
automagically update the FAQ and transform it into HTML including a nice
index and update for the search engines. I mean in a few years something
like this is probably reality and even today similar applications are
shurely serving the information needs of secret services.
