OK, first of all, apologies to Derek for responding directly but I wasn't sure he would be subscribed to sounder and this has 
drifted so far off-topic that the protection that the [OT] provides isn't enough for my conscience to allow me to clutter up 
ubuntu-user with more nonsense.

What shouldn't Leonard be doing?   I'm really missing the point here (and fear it may truly be lost by now).  I'm confused about 
how Leonard avoiding various dangerous --force-xxx options could possibly prevent him from damaging anything but the machine he's 
executing these commands on.  Or is the worry that discussing it on the list as a potential fix will lead someone else to possibly 
try the same command (and break their own machine)?  Even should we accept that as a possibility, I'm not sure how anyone could 
possibly blame Leonard.

	eagerly waiting an explanation,
