There was a consensus when was created that that URL
would be the default home for Lynx users. It is trivial to change the
STARTFILE in the cfg file or the command line. Assuming that because a
few users think Lynx is broken on the rare times that is
unreachable does not imply that "users will become confused and think
that they cannot run Lynx."

I think users will be more confused to find a directory listing, than
to find a helpful Lynx starting page on the web. Leave the distribution
