Which you are totally allowed to do.  :-)

I think we need to chalk this one up under the umbrella of:

"Don't just run programs out of curiosity. Ensure you know what
you are doing".

I really can't see us patching the book (removing an installed
program) so that someone won't execute it. Instead, I believe we
would be better off teaching proper usage of the system (which
really isn't in the scope of the BLFS book).

Just running programs without any clue what they do seems to be
one of the worst things one could do (especially a program with
the word 'clean' in the program name).
