As far as I know (I Scottish, but live in Norway), "freak" does not
correspond to any Norwegian word.  However, I can well imagine that
the Norwegian (students?) who started the website felt it meant
"people who are madly enthusiastic about AVRs".

That was what I meant to imply. When a native english speaker hears the word freak, it does not have a positive conotation. Native english speakers hence might get the wrong impression of the quality of the content of the avr freaks site.

And, unfortunately, a number of them do get the wrong impression....

For me, freak is nothing more than dedicated enthusiast and has
nothing negative about it.
