If you're running as root, neither of those do the same thing
        rm -rf /home/gary/public_html/mrtg/david/*

What if that directory also has a few file called .dont_delete
in it ?  You both just deleted it (note disclaimer about running
as root for the first one - the ls -A alias being the reason).
