  The FAQ is guilty of egregious and annoying use of the word "simply,"
  "Simply use this command" is vaguely patronizing, especially when the
  command is a Perl regex with a few obscure (to new users) command-line
  options attached.  "Use this command" answers the question, and
  doesn't imply that you should know this already.
  In most cases, when you begin a sentence with the word "simply" you
  shouldn't.  Simply begin your sentence with the second word instead.
