comment Avoid mutt sending mail with too many entries in To: or Cc: fields
Handling these test in the MUA may be was the OP was asking for, unfortunately, it's very easy to subvert. I can talk to sendmail directly. I can telnet to port 25 and talk to the MUA through a pipe. If I have a no telnet to the MTA but I have a compiler, I can easily write a program that talks to port 25. All this points to the MTA as being the proper place for filtering.

comment Automatically put an alias into ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc
@WillianPaixao not quite. The source command in this answer makes the alias immediately available, which your's does not. That's not an earth-shattering difference, but is is better than "logout and login again".

comment Volume too quiet at maximum
I don't know the answer. I do know that manufacturers play pretty fast and loose with their printed specifications and speaker resistance, everything else being equal, should work in direct proportionality to current and voltage. But other things aren't equal and sound equipment manufacturers either a) like to hide these difference or b) don't know how to conveniently characterize these differences or c) like to play the marketing game of a bigger/smaller number is better/worse than another number.

comment How to make user passwords shown as a clear text in Linux?
It may sound like I'm making an argument for security through obscurity. I was trying to argue that it is unwise to give teenage boys whiskey and car-keys with instruction in neither. But I may well have failed in that attempt.

comment How to make user passwords shown as a clear text in Linux?
It is my sense that if one has to ask "Is there a way … to save the password in the /etc/passwd in clear text and such that the root can see them?", then they lack the relevant understanding as to why they oughtn't. Of course, the OP could always implement the holes you enumerate, but it seems unwise to aid someone in bad practice (even if he could find the information elsewhere). The OP will likely never be your sysadmin, and I'm sure you use unique strong passwords religiously, but many people are not so enlightened; I'm sure there are others who are not so rigorous.
