man pages must still work minimally

$ man ls
              print the author of each file
$ ls --author

Therefore the man page isn't accurate unless you place a statement
at top that one must read the whole page first before using anything.

You might as well say "see the Info page" at top instead of bottom.
P.S., empty lines seen intruding:
              follow each command line symbolic link

              that points to a directory

              extension -X, none -U, size -S, time -t, version -v

              status -c, time -t, atime -u, access -u, use -u
ls (coreutils) 5.2.1
