Just a suggestion, but given the last few days' posts/tweets, wouldn't it be more appropriate to rename the FAQ to FIA?

Of course, back in the day, before this interweb  thingy came along, we just used to say RTFM to people who asked stupid questions without taking the time or trouble to work things out for themselves.

Change it to "[email protected]@K!!! Awesome lolcats!!".

It will be a few minutes before they realise that they've been had, and they might have accidentally read down to "Buying and shipping" by then

Or "Buy Now".

I was tempted to write a twitter bot which searches for tweets sent to the @raspberry_pi account with keywords like "international" and "can I buy" and then automatically reply with "@user RTFFAQ: http://www.raspberrypi.org/faqs"

Would take a bit of the strain off our Liz.

Maybe "DON'T CLICK THIS!!" should work.
