comment In Debian based systems, how do we purge configuration files of packages that have already been uninstalled?
Usually, I keep the important configurations in my own home folder. This means the --purge flag does not do anything problematic to me. And it actually helps me not having any problems later on. Is there any good reason you say I shouldn't use --purge that I'm missing?
