Maybe the preceding line puts the suggestion better:

But you might as well take it - we think that you shuold.

Personally, I think that putting *any* advertising on any of the wiki*.tld
sites that we own would reduce the impact of our message and be totally
misunderstood where it matters. ie:
Cut the protesting, forget the excuses
We want information ...


ps. David G: could you tag your posts "[irony]" or "[humour]" as some
people reading them - especially if they aren't aware of your sense of
humour - might think you are being serious / sane!
