The user won't understand the question, regardless of where we put it.
So if we're asking because we care about the answer, then no, it's not
appropriate anywhere, because we're not going to get useful answers. And
if we don't care about the answer, then it's not appropriate anywhere
either, because we're basically lying to the user in that case.
