Its the one time that rm asks for Y/N input when it matters that makes up for all the other times that I get annoyed with it asking for Y/N input.

@lynne by default, it only asks y/n when you try to delete something you don't have +w on, right?

@wolf480pl @lynne git is a worst offender for false positives

also, `rm -r` or `rm` with multiple files isnt an atomic operation, so it could still be destructive even if some of your files are -w. always use -i or better yet, manually review your arguments first
