Sorry,  it is akin to someone driving up to you while you are in a gas
station in a unleaded ford asking very nicely "Do you know where the diesel
pumps are"?  The question is literate and well formed but in context implies
lack of understanding.  I would choose to answer,  "You know, are not
driving a diesel and putting unleaded in that car will break it -- the pumps
are over there".  If you want unadulterated bits in response to questions go
read the source,  if you ask here there are many people that actually read
the questions and respond with holistic information that may not be the
exact output you are looking for.

Second and more important,  the responses are offered for free -- complaints
are considered a cost.
