No, actually I would completely prefer to remove this warning, but since
another author thinks it is required to warn against other help sites,
I guess at least editing it, to make it sound less negative is
appropriate, since at least ask Ubuntu and Ubuntu mailing list archives,
are monitored by the community and usually secure sources of
information. So "on your own risk", should IMO read "ask if you
don't understand the content".

However, stop trolling!
