Do not post "Try this:"-answers. Rather write "That's because ..."-answers.

"Try this:"-answers are either lies, because the answerer knows what it/she/he posted is working, but misuses the word "try"; or they indicate inprecision or lazyness on the answerer side. However, they always indicate a lack of empathy and foresight.

The hints may or may not work, but usually only help for the moment, but not in the future, when the questioner asks a related question she or he doesn't even recognize as related.

@Jason C: Yeah, of course, I do not disagree with all the comments. But this confirms that it should not be represented as a fact, but as a guess or something that is probable.

I hope you don't mind my edit: Relaxed it from fact to guess.

@Cheeseminer: Alternatively, the formulation could be changed to no longer represent a fact. If something cannot be proven then it can at most be a claim. There's definitely a correlation, however, obviousness is the enemey of the truth. Example: To me it is obvious that the earth is flat and that the sun sets and rises around our planet. Air is immaterial, because I cannot hold it. And there is no mass market for computers, so probably you are working at IBM and currently computing the diameter of the earth disk.

Do you guess the historical reason or do you know it? Could you provide some evidence?
