I would agree, except.

Having helped this user on a number of other occasions I would say that they are not computer sophisticated enough to know the difference.

Stop, already! Not everyone who comes here for advice is computer savvy. What are you going to do when someone tells you to drag the volume to the trash and drop it, or open your pref file? What are you going to do if someone tells you to open ifup?

If you can't help the member then let some one else do it. And learn. It is amazing how many tricks the old timers know.
