    Problem is context. To use a downhill skiing analogy, a double-diamond skier, a green run is simple. But to someone who has never skied before, a green run is terrifying and definitely not simple.

    The Dreyfus Model (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreyfus_model_of_skill_acquisition) gives a good overview of what each person needs when acquiring a new skill.

    I don’t think the word “simply” is neither good or bad. It just depends on what skill level the instructions are aimed at.
