I believe a better way of phrasing this would be 'why can't you include the content from this forum post
in a link labelled "FAQ" next to the download, or maybe as part of the .zip file you download, instead of expecting people to check the forums.'
I can't imagine this being more then a few minutes worth of work, to just copy and paste that forum post somewhere more obvious to look. But really, that forum post I just linked is from Nov 2009. That's 3 1/4 years old now. Can't you just include it in the zip file at least?
