Well, don't blame the lawyers directly, it will make us sound guilty of
something even though we're not.  :-)  It may sound better from a 
PR/customer service standpoint to point to an archive of these sorts of 
things that are kept up-to-date by people who actually care.  That way we 
can say such neat customer-comfiness-speak things as "for the latest in 
blah blah blah, check this site out" and absolve ourselves of responsibility 
while still helping people out.  Is there such a beast?  (I know I could go 
to Infoseek or Alta Vista and search for it, but I what I really want to 
know is if anyone has a favorite resource besides  I'm looking
