Just an example of what I'm talking about. After I got done reading (&
responding) to this thread in the evangelism group, I dropped down to
the plone.setup group to find this question:

And no, an answer to Chris Ellis's question does not belong here. ;-)
It seems somewhat disingenuous to claim "easy to install" as it's #2
"Top Question" with things like this.
I would STRONGLY suggest removing that claim. At least for now.
