Very much so.

NAK on Clippy.

This is a slippery slope. I prefer to point to existing resources
instead of turning Subsurface into a "everything for everyone"
kitchensink project. Maintaining a knowledgebase (especially on an often
hotly debated topic) sounds like a great way to get bogged down in
non-software related discussions.

So what would be nice is a section on the website where we point people
to good resources for the typical questions they face.

What do the GFlow/high values mean. What are reasonable values.
Why am I not dead, yet?
