comment How do I use man pages to learn how to use commands?
Also, xargs is a very powerful tool which might be difficult to understand for many users still learning unix chained command lines. For this particular command you might need to read the man page a few times :-)

comment Is there a problem using resize2fs too often?
Specifically it says, Note that resize2fs does not change the block size, even if a freshly created filesystem on the same device would default to a larger size. For this reason, recreation may be a better option if you need to turn a very small filesystem into a very large one. so it's not so much about using resize2fs too often, it's about making a small filesystem large.

comment When are spaces around the = sign forbidden?
.bashrc is not a config file for bash. .bashrc is a shell script which bash runs every time a bash process starts. It can be used to configure bash but it can be used to do all sorts of other things too: it's a script, not a config file.
