Think about what happens if you do this: the problem still exists, you
still have to google or ask on a forum, you just get a shorter string
to copy and paste. If it's really needed permanently that's one thing,
but in most cases these kind of commands are to work round a
particular issue in not always the best way and usually point to
something that should be fixed somewhere else.
