I agree that readers should be aware of which rules their using and
the differences among various ruling bodies.  About 50% of rules
questions on this forum have answers that differ among USAV indoor,
USAV outdoor, FIVB, FIVB Beach, AVP, NAGWS, and NFHSA.

The issue with the FAQ (IMO) is not that it's specific to USAV rules
so much as it's quite out of date, especially considering the major
rule changes that have occurred in the past 2 years.

I've been pestering Tom Jack every couple of weeks for some time about
this, but when he's doing such a fantastic job of keeping Volleyball
Worldwide going, it's hard to truly complain.  :)

I have repeatedly offered to take over maintenance the rules section
of the FAQ for him, but my offer falls upon deaf ears.  Tom?  Oh Tom?
I'll even update the USAV rules references to 1997-98 rules.  :)
