The link I posted IMO is straight forward. The Ubuntu help is more
detailed, perhaps useful if somebody should run into issues, but it also
could scare or confuse users.

Some advices, especially from the Ubuntu community, on official Ubuntu
channels, are encouraging novices to learn. Those sites are monitored by
the Ubuntu community. Even blogs that are not official Ubuntu
channels, aren't necessarily bad.

IMO at least

"Cryptic Shell Commands

There are various cryptic shell incantations floating around help sites
and search engines that promise to remove older kernels. Copy-and-paste
mysterious incantations into your system at your own risk."

should read

"Shell commands and scripts

There are help sites that help to remove older kernels, too.
Before you copy-and-paste or install scripts suggested by users of
official Ubuntu channels, send a request to this channel, to ensure
that you would do the right thing. Be even more careful with hints from
websites, that aren't monitored by the Ubuntu community."
