I think the point is that this information is easily attainable "from the horse's mouth" as it were by going to the USCIS website. I's very easily navigable.

Posters can certainly be of assistance in relating their particular experiences in different areas but it would be unwise to rely on them to provide all the basics as they're not the governing instrument.
