    I added a line to my sig as well.

    NOTE: Several trolls have been giving bad advice to unsuspecting new users. Never run a command with "rm" in it unless you understand exactly what it will do. [link]
    That's an excellent response, p_quarles. I've adapted one from it.

    I've liked some of the other people's warnings better, so I've modified my sig to match those.

    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything, don't do it, and don't run any command with rm in it unless you know exactly what you're doing.things i have learnt changing from Xp pro to Ubuntu
