question regarding adding the news journal as a friend

This may not be the best place to bring this up, but it's at least potentially a 'is there a place to document this, if nothing else' issue, so here we go.

As this request points out, when you add the news journal as a friend, you get the standard message you'd get as if you added a personal journal -- "You are granting this user access to see your FO entries." Which isn't true, and probably freaks more than a few people out.

As the news journal is a special journal of type N, I guess, is there any way to change the message that they see?

And if not, is there an appropriate FAQ somewhere that could be updated with a line about 'Note that in the specific instance of adding the 'news' journal to your friends list, don't worry, no one will be able to read your entries about how much you love RuPaul' or whatever?
