The number it gives at "Minimal fees" on the What is Bitcoin? page isn't up to date.

The site is hosted on Github and I believe Jeff Garzik controls bitcoin.org DNS.

He's staff here on the forums, so you can PM him jgarzik

Bitcoin pioneer. An apostle of Satoshi Nakamoto. A crusader for a new, better, tech-driven society. A dreamer.

You are describing the page titled "What is Bitcoin" from WeUseCoins.com
 - http://www.WeUseCoins.com

That is Stefan Thomas' site:
 - http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=53924.0

Specifically, it currently reads:
Quote
Fair
Minimal fees
Using the Bitcoin network is free, except for a voluntary fee you can use to speed up transaction processing.

Technically, that is accurate.  The Bitcoin protocol doesn't require fees.  Most transactions nowadays include a fee but nearly every block includes some transactions where no fee is paid.

I agree it is misleading because there are certain conditions which would cause a payment to not end up being processed in a timely manner.
