Why isn't the capitalization of the word "friends" consistent?

It's not even consistent within individual FAQs!

http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=61

How do I manage my Friends list? (capitalized in the title)
To edit your friends using the web interface...
(uncapitalized)
You can remove a listed friend by...
(uncapitalized)
To add Friends and set up...
(capitalized)
Usernames that appear in bold text when you view your own User Info page or someone else's mean that the user is on your Friends list.
(capitalized)
...people whom you list as a friend and who also list you as a friend...
(uncapitalized)

So in one FAQ, we have three uncapitalized, three capitalized.

It's not even consistent in the TITLES to the FAQs, which is really annoying:

What is the auto-add Friends link on the User Info page? (capitalized in the title)

What are custom friends groups? How do I use them? (uncapitalized in the title)

So, is it supposed to be capitalized or not? I don't want to go through the list and mention every instance of a capital or lower-case letter unless I know which it's supposed to be.

Yes, I know, it's a little petty, but it's starting to drive me batty.
