Without statistics, you can't actually tell for sure:
1. if this is really a prominent page which is getting a lot of hits.
2. if visitors noticed this at all or do/did care.
3. how many visitors were offended, and if it could
even be a "vast majority" (when is a majority "vast"?).
Just because you care about it (thank you for the heads up),
doesn't mean 99% of other visitors did/do: we just can't
know because there are no or not enough data to tell.
Having said that, the improvement you're suggesting:

looks quite reasonable to me.
So please send-pr a patch to reword this page and have that
discussed on the appropriate mailing list. questions@ is
probably not the appropriate forum for that.
