Someone added a very bright disclaimer, so all should be good in the 
future. I do agree with others that using /dev/sdX would probably be 
wise as well in documentation, but that doesn't fix the true root of the 
problem. People really should watch cutting and pasting, or typing, 
commands on a Linux root without understanding what it is that the 
commands are doing.

Is it possible you could help him with some basic Linux lessons then, 
and/or point him to some beginner material so this doesn't happen again.

I just had a problem with blaming the author of a document, (I didn't 
even write it) when the user did not read the document. If he doesn't 
speak or read English well, then that doesn't help that, nor does adding 
warnings help either if he can't read English well.

I'm not certain what languages the page has been translated to, but 
perhaps look into that for him as well. Or can you translate the page?
