There's an interesting thread on the CentOS mailing list on
sys admin horror stories.  Amusing read.

I once had a vendor sys admin run an "rm -rf ./project/ subdir" and
delete the entire ./project folder and 2 months of live data.  Same
vendor had also not noticed that automated backups had failed for
many weeks and we were running without any backup for a long
time.  A penalty of Rs 2 lakhs was enforced, all because of one
extra space in the command.
