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* It begins with a tag saying it's out of date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