[ale] Never log onto your satellite as root



I don't get the "rm -rf /".  Was that a joke inserted by the author of
the piece?   Every link says it was an orientation command that was
sent.  "rm -rf /" might reorient your world view by making you look for
a new job but it's not really an orientation command.

P.S.  Ale not as active today - ping
