Opinion: What's wrong with Yes and No ?

IT people get accused all the time, of being out of touch with other people, and for using language that is overly complex.

So many times lately, I've come across dialog boxes like the one above.

It's clearly asking a Yes/No question. Why on Earth doesn't it give the user Yes and No as answer choices?

Why do we do this to users?

If you're building apps, please don't do this. If you ask a question that in normal language would lead to a Yes or No response, please give the users Yes and No as answer choices.
