I agree with most of what you say in your post but...

However, I think that reading the docs is more enlightening than the most spot-on post, because of the things you'll learn while reading them.

I think that a well written post speaks more clearly than the documentation that often comes with code. Sometimes a poster will comment on stuff that might not be included in the docs.

At any rate, I prefer reading real bound books to reading online docs unless the online docs supersede the paper ones.
