    Reason #732 why you shouldn't just copy and paste

    Or, "Just because it's on the web doesn't mean it's right."

    Or, "Well, it did clear my print spooler."

    Oh wow. Hope anyone who downloaded the code noticed it before it did any real damage. I'll have to make sure I look over any code that I use well beforehand.

    Dave are you just spamming your signature? These replies you're making seem marginal at best.

    Yikes, that could go wrong quite badly..

    Perhaps if the the print spooler didn't get stuck so bloody often there wouldn'e be need for such scripts

    That's almost too funny I don't see why you would need to run this because it's to easy to kill your print queue.

    The worrisome thing for me is that it's that easy to do that amount of damage. There should be better protections in place in the operating system.

    Copy paste issues have been a headache for some time now. What these people fail to realize is the potential threats of these because any one can make errors. We are humans and we will make errors. Itís no new news. But making sure our part is clear is what we have to do. Here the example given above clearly shows us how it is able for a helping solution to become a deadly solution. So next time anyone attempts to copy paste just think again!
