Reference Guide :-)

Our reference guide was previously called a users guide. I ditched the
apostrophe long ago. Deciding where it should go, before or after the s,
leads to unnecessary confusion and debate. I prefer to simplify. Thinking
about it now, I'd even ditch the s and just go with user guide. Just like a
horse stall is a stall for horses and a car battery is a battery for cars, a
user guide is a guide for users.
