Of course.  My point is that people do respond, not that it's very
helpful; I'm looking for ways to save some of that effort.

Right.  I actually thought of the cPanel angle, but left it out.

Yes.  It's a policy issue.  Sometimes the OP will respond to the "nice
person who actually answered my question", and start a thread.  I
think providing answers to off-topic FAQs is a Good Thing[tm], but it
should be kept off-list and it shouldn't clutter the main sections of
the FAQ.
