"Saved high score locally"

I am one of the few who will use Openfeint after the sky has dropped on my head. I have zero interest in it. I do appreciate that OF enabled games ask on first start if you want to join. And because the sky is still up there I decline.

Doodle Copter.
Play, get a good score and it says "Saved high score locally" along with the OF logo.

1. I expect the high score to be saved locally. It's a given, the game would not be complete without it, I don't need to know.
2. Saving locally is sort of like saying "Well if you change your mind about OF it will be uploaded". It is effectively nagging me to use OF and that is something I would rather not have the game do.

I appreciate that most here love OF and the way that extends games but some of us do not. If we say No it would be nice not to see the logo.
