Hi Geoffrey,

The following commands are ok to do (because I have 2 unpushed commits):

Is there any way to make git idiot proof by enabling that the local repo
should always respect the history of the remote repo (unless forced)?
Is there any way to make this a default for anyone who clones our blessed
No one that clones our blessed repo wants to come into the situation above.
And if they do, they can always force it.
This makes little sense.
Which remote?
To all remotes which have a relationship to this repo with the -respectRemote flag.
Normally, only the blessed remote will have this.
What if I have multiple remotes?  Which branch? (Many
of my branches are behind `master`).
Everytime a branch merges or rebases with a remote repository, it's flags the last commit of that remote repository as the pointOfNoReset commit. If local branches merge or rebase with a local branch, the pointOfNoReset commit is transitively applied (only the last one wins). git reset will fail to reset beyond the pointOfNoReset commit, unless forced.

Branches that are behind master, will have a pointOfNoReset commit in their history, if master goes forward afterwards, that won't affect those branches, not until they are merged.
   What if I want different
histories on different remotes?
Don't use the -respectRemote flag in the relationship between those 2 repo's.
  What about more advanced operations
which implicitly 'reset' like rebase?
Them too. All operations would need to follow the -respectRemote flag's limitations, unless forced.
   What if I want to rewrite
Don't use the -respectRemote flag in the relationship between this repo and any other repo.
Or force it.
