Just check "Show all file extensions" in the "Advanced" tab of the Finder's Preferences and it won't ask if you're sure you know what you're doing when you edit them.

I guess the idea is that if you're smart enough not to like your computer hiding *some* extensions with no way of knowing which, then you're unlikely to like the anti-bozo nag dialog.

That doesn't work on my MacOS X 10.4.2 system, or the other one I have at home. It didn't work in Panther either.
Anyone else got any idea how to kill one of the most annoying dialogues on the mac?

Doesn't work in 10.4_ That is one of the first things I make sure is active along with disabling the Trash Warning [on every Sys Upgrade] 'cause Apple likes to default that to annoy advanced users for some reason_

Anyway - setting the 'turn on file extensions' setting in any ver. of Tiger so far has not made the stupid dialog confirm box go away_
