People who absolutely don't read help screens are not the group that the
help screen tries to address. And you can't say you've paid any attention to
the screen at all if you skip the stuff as explicit as:

When you have finished browsing, press `Q' or <enter> to quit.

Press <enter> to leave help and enter the list now.

Press ? for help menu, <space> for next topic, <enter> to exit help.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
