On Down-voting

About two percent of my votes are down-votes, which I think is quite low. Down-voting is an important part of StackExchange and helps separate the good answers (and questions) from the not-so-good. If I have down-voted one of your posts, I will have left you a comment as to why. If you down-vote one of my posts, I ask that you, too, leave a comment as to why so that I can either improve my post or remove it. Thank you.

comment How do I delete this folder in Solaris?
@KentPawar: I've updated my answer accordingly. I'm not sure it warranted a downvote as it was a reasonable response to the question as it stood at the time with double-quotes.

comment How to name a file in the deepest level of a directory tree
N.B: If you just want to print the filename, you can omit deepest=$( [...] ) and start from find. It's not really clear what you're trying to achieve.

I see. There are many ways to solve this. I recommend my own solution since it involves only one |, keeping subprocesses to a minimum.

Your one-liner is incomprehensible to me. I'm sorry I cannot debug that for you. Does my example not do what you asked for?

Why should they be one-liners? As you've seen , when a one-liner goes wrong, it's very hard to debug! Open an editor and write a bash script!

Why do so many people try to do so much on one line? I don't get it!
