Thank you.  No one likes trolling.

It should be obvious that if you start removing packages you should
understand what you are doing.  To run DNF, you first have to have root
authority - which should be the first red flag. Second, when you enter a
command to remove a package and it comes back and lists hundreds of
dependencies it is also going to remove, that should be enough of a nudge
for the prudent person to reply "N".

You can't stop people from being careless by asking them again if they are
really, really sure.  If they go ahead and destroy their system and have to
re-install, maybe that will be a sufficient deterrent to keep them from
doing it again.  Just like telling a child not to touch a hot surface...
some listen and the ones that don't get burned.
