A new purchaser might not know to read the wiki. Such a notice should  
also be on the Openmoko.com site, too, particularly pages around the  
online store.

Openmoko have been advised about this on a number of occasions, and I  
thought they had even agreed to post such a notice. At present it  
seems quite easy to go to Openmoko.com, click on "Products" > "Buy  
now" > "USA" > "Store" > "Buy now" and not see such a notice.

Otherwise I do generally agree with you that these threads are  
unproductive. But the best way to deal with them is to remove all  
excuses to whine about Freerunner stability - by posting such a notice.
