Thanks for your kind words! I agree that all of these answers exist in the Help files, and most of the answers in my FAQ link to Help. Believe me, I have no interest in reinventing the wheel. The problem is, the existing wheel don't roll.
The people who keep asking the same questions over and over don't seem to be able to find the Help files (or don't bother to look). Similarly, I doubt those people will have any more success finding them in Best Answers, if they even know such a thing exists. I also submit to you that the Help files are not always very clear.
My goal was to provide something simple and accessible to cover these repetitive situations. For instance, next time one of these questions comes up, instead of repeating/retyping the same answer, or digging once again through the Help files to link the right one, just link to the FAQ with a note saying, 'Please see #5, and let us know if you still need help.'
