No one is trying to stop YOU from making a mistake. On the other
hand, teaching a newbie good security practice from the start will
help keep Linux machines from ending up like so many Windows machines.

Then again, all your protests about making machines secure by
defaults sounds like you want an easier time cracking other peoples
machines. What are you going to suggest next? Making your password
the same as your user name? Turning off the firewall? Turning on all
the 'r' services?
