Hi Yavor,

I agree that we should educate users. However, I'm afraid that I'm not
convinced that confusing them so that they don't know where to find
information is the best way of educating them. We have to assume that
they don't know what it means, rather than hope that by using the term
on the front page of the help system, they will automatically learn.
