Just yesterday I took out our hosting server with a
simple typo. I wiped out our entire vhosts directory,
taking all web spaces for every client in seconds!
Accidents can happen. Only use root when you

P.S. Frequent and thorough backups are also a must,
even on home systems. Thanks to the daily backup
scripts I was running, I only had to grab a tarball
and unpack it to bring everything back to the way it
was at 12:30 am that day.
