You can do what ever you like. I can assure you you are not alone on this. I can only tell you that you are risking your system security needlessly and in doing so eliminating much of the benefit that many hope to find in using this OS in the first place. But that's the problem with freedom - it tends to include the freedom to completely screw yourself while everyone stands back and lets you.

its ok, i fixed and neutralised the problem/threat:

in ur trash can folder, show all hiden files, then open up .directory

make sure it has all this:

[Desktop Entry]

and everythin will be fixed, woohoooooo!! im a pro, and im not riskin my system security, runin root in linux is almost the same as runin admin in xp,2k, wich i do anyway,

and i havent had any problems so far, in fact, iv learned alot, since,

so i dnt belev all that crap about not loggign in as root, thats the only way to learn :-)

if 1 million ppl agree on something ? and 1 person dusnt ? dus that make 1 person rong, no it dusnt

i am that 1 person :-)
