How to uninstall MacGIMP

Interesting to see how other ppl approach the problem differently. Also interesting to see how a hint from someone calling himself "Cunning Linguist" was not up to par when compared to other solutions.

I disagree; "Cunning Linguist" was kind enough to offer some help, and plenty of us are grateful. I don't know what you're getting at with the comment about the username.

I was joking/laughing when I made the comment. No ill-will meant towards the initial hinter. But I still do think it's interesting to read about the different ways to do the same thing. Versatility is nice amongst the community, and it's especially nice to see so many minds come together to deduce the best approach to solving the problem.

You are criticizing a tip that works just fine? Why?

The first two replies recommend the same change. A change that eliminates 1 step from the process. Great but not that big a deal.

The third reply says to use the -r flag. This works but could be risky for relative unix newbies to use. Yes it does save a step, no it doesn't alter the final outcome of the tip.

The fifth reply takes 6 or so steps to accomplish what my tip does in 2. He also seems to miss some MacGIMP files.

Then you toss out "not up to par when compared to other solutions". As the points above prove, your comment shows that you apparently didn't compare them.

I do not understand people like you. I offer a tip to help out... a tip that I could not find anywhere on the web... a tip that works and is safe for those new to unix to use... and you poop on it.

My suggestion for you and your ilk, be nice... not mean.

-Cunning Linguist

p.s. the name refers to skill at linguistics... what this has to do with skill at writing unix tips for OSXHints is beyond me.

--- is one reason PC users should switch to a Mac.
