Completely disable single user mode
Authored by: kaega2 on Oct 27, '11 05:50:28PM
I see a lot of people (most at first) talking about how stupid this tip is. Your last chance to fix a problem? This guy clearly gave an example of what he would use this for, a business environment. Why am I going to waste time in single user mode trying to rename the right file to fix my system, when I can take two minutes and start it on a reformat.

Single user mode logs you in as root.

I'm not even going to bother expanding on that.
