I'm afraid the internet works differently: people pick a trusted site and copy and paste (see Stack Overflow) so this is really a bad, security speaking, advice, hint, suggestion, whatsoever, beginner thingy ... because beginners should be the first one to understand that security is not a joke.

Please update this post ASAP and remove that script before it damages some clueless copy-paster.

Thanks for your help in making this site a better place for beginners too 👋

I've removed my initial comment, as the post has been updated and there is no place for that comment anymore.

Thank you for the update, I know it feels less "wow" or "cool" now, but it was the right thing to do 👍
