I already conceeded that the word crappy was a poor choice, so stop 
beating this dead horse into a bloody pulp, as you often feel the need to 

Secondly, your assertion that I "asked whether it was OO programmers who 
created the website" is false, because what I actually said was "Is this 
is what happens when OO programmers try to design a website? ;-)"

Clearly this pitiful attempt at humour was lost on you, even though 
there's a smiley at the end of the sentence. It was meant as a joke/in 
jest more han anything else, and it would serve you better in the future 
to be less anal-retentive. There is, as there often is, a possible kernel 
of truth in the statement. All the proposals I've seen to "improve" that I remember involve breaking things out /MORE/. This 
e-mail from uli is /anecdotal/ evidence that this may in fact be a 
counterproductive route. I agree with him on many of his points. If people 
can't easily find installation guides, we need to fix something. There are 
some fundamental flaws with the way the website is laid out (content 
wise), IMHO.

In any event, I will reiterate for the sake of keeping a focused 
conversation, we need to come to consensus on how we should progress with 
cleaning up the website to make things easier to locate.
