[solved] 'Common Problems and Issues' recommends pacman -Syyu

I noticed that Common Problems and Issues recommends pacman -Syyu if the local database needs to be updated. This stickied advice conflicts with that often given in threads which is that the second y should be used only if the local database is corrupted or there is some other specific reason to download the database anew.

I was wondering if there was any way for this to be corrected since it further encourages people to hit the servers harder than necessary and is not, as far as I understand it, good practice.
