Why would you delete the whole .Trash folder? Why not ~/.Trash/* ?

How to restore a user's .Trash folder

Yeah, I was going to suggest the following:

cd ~/.Trash
rm *

Much easier, IMHO.

Because inevitably someone will add a space between the trailing slash and the asterisk, or they'll forget to do the cd command first. Oops, there go the contents of your home directory!
