    then why not just explain the safe way, and don't even mention the
    unsafe way??

    Because "security through obscurity" rarely works -- at least not for long. System administrators (even if we're only talking about a home PC with one or two users) should be aware of both best practice as well as the not-so-great methods that may, nonetheless, be needed in certain "edge" cases. Otherwise, we risk allowing the perfect to become the enemy of the good.

    They are not "unsafe". Just not so safe.
