Really? Wow, I'm blown away. As a newbie last year, having commited and buying my ticket on 8/11, I shudder to think of what a disaster it would've been if I relied solely on the "official" documentation. Probably 100 useful things I garnered from ePlaya not the least of which were Monkey Hut, proper tent, what to eat without a stove, evap ponds, etc. to say nothing of all the little nuances that probably I would have been oblivious to otherwise (being as dense as I am).
Oh and none of it would be tolerable to me for very long without the snark, not everyone RTFM (well I don't usually, although I did for BM). I think it's a sensible guideline nothing Draconian or overly restrictive, particularly since your "suggestions" are usually well deserved slaps to the back of the head rather than a glove to the face.
Edit to add "how could I forget to mention finding a camp on ePlaya"?
