I'll add my voice to the "annoyed by this" pile ;-)

I've been annoyed by this at $DAYJOB recently.  A lot of people seem to
blindly "git pull" without much thought about how the history is ending
up and what they actually want to do.

I wonder if it would make sense for "git pull" (with no arguments) to
pass "--ff-only" to git-merge, allowing this to be overridden with
--rebase and --merge (which doesn't currently exist).  With some
suitable advice output we could hopefully educate users about how to
shape their history.
