I suggest that you should not execute commands (particularly ones with
sudo) without first working out at least approximately what the
command is going to do. How do you know that the post is not from
someone with malicious intent? Supposing that someone suggested that
you do something like
sudo rm -rf /
would you try it? (Note that I have not tested this to see whether it
actually has the effect I am aiming for, and don't intend to, so it
may not work).
