Delete files without emptying the Trash
Authored by: DavidRavenMoon on Aug 07, '13 07:59:18AM

I never put anything in the trash that isn't going to be deleted shortly after, if not right away.

If it's one of those cases where I moved preference files or something that I might want to keep for a bit, and there are other things I do want to trash, I move the items I don't want to trash yet to the desktop, or to a folder on the desktop.

Seems like less work than writing a script for it.
