That article is infuriating.

I searched for an alternative. The second Google result for 'add user ubuntu' is: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddUsersHowto

There are problems:

* The article has a pants title - no novice in their right mind is going to click the link over the first result with the better title

* It begins with a tag saying it's out of date

* It's marked as immutable so those who care can't make it better.

What can we do to make these terrible articles go away?
