Using ack with * on the command line is a common anti-pattern that limits ack's true potential and is a source of confusion for users new and old. We should have an FAQ entry that addresses this.

Maybe this should expand into a "how ack differs from grep", and also in the front intro section we need something about how ack is not a replacement for grep or find.
