It’ probably  a good idea to remember that if you run a very popular site there is a good chance that at least one visitor to your site will have less than a months experience on the web, and might not always be familiar with common web conventions… you should never say the words “Everyone knows that” because it’s rarely true, unless the statement happens to be “Michael Jackson is Dead”.
