I am so glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. I can't contribute to 
the documentation to make it better or fill in the gaps, because I don't even 
know what questions to ask to get the answers I'm looking for. After a while, 
I begin to stop asking questions, because it's obvious everyone else gets it, 
so it must just be that I'm a moron for not intuitively just figuring it all
