The thing is that ad revenue depends on number of hits, meaning that
these sites have an interest in making people click around a lot. I
personally prefer FAQs which are on a single page, with an index at the
top (hyperlinked if it's HTML).

With jguru not only do you not get the FAQ on a single page but you also
don't get individual parts in a "clean" way without a lot of HTML fluff
around it.

I prefer FAQs and mailing lists be kept seperate. If something is up for
discussion it probably doesn't belong on the FAQ list.
