Powershell’s social responsibility

The world is not as polite anymore as it was years ago. People are forgetting what was called “good behavior / manner”. And Powershell is entering the world and starting to monopolize in the world of scripting languages.

I think Powershell should show some level of social responsibility. And today, I’m taking action to change it:

I, Ulf B. Simon-Weidner, propose hereby that Powershell should be forced to show more social responsibility. Therefore I propose two actions:

  1. Any command executed should, by default, set the –whatif parameter
    (This would prevent the commands from executing, it’ll only tell us what it would do)
  2. To really execute a command, the –please Parameter must be used, which will revoke the –whatif parameter.

Wouldn’t this be nice?
