That would imply we actually care about the FUD. Having an in-your-face
FAQ about all these points would be OK, but people spreading the FUD
would not care regardless.

There is a group of people that will not read any manual, but think they
still know everything regardless. They will look at
stable/testing/unstable and proclaim from the bottom of their orifices
that they know what these stand for. They will ignore the Debian
Reference at
http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/reference/reference.en.html even
though it is two clicks away from the main page (click on Docs then the
Debian Reference).

So the bottom line is people that listen/spreading FUD will probably not
be addressed by this FAQ because they are not interested in reading
documentation in the first place.
