Could, but I don't want to come off as patronizing.  Last thing I want 
to happen is someone to read that line with "obvious" and then have them 
feel stupid because it didn't come off as obvious.

Even if the person isn't that smart they can still give the PSF money so 
I want to minimize the chance of insulting a possible sugar-daddy for 
the PSF.  =)
