Stupid is a terrible word and ought not be used on a Public List. That
attitude will force moderation and who wants to be that girl or guy.

Go back to the original post before you resort to such childish adjectives.
I agree, optimizing your commands to suit only the situation in which it
will be exectued, is a great practice.

to allow root to your xsession try typing the following command as you
 xhost +
this will grant anyone from anywhere acess to your xsession

But when, members post to there list I don't think that they should have to
go through all the motions in every step. Instead of saying:

PASSWD: your passwd
your at yourhost$ sudo
PASSWD: your passwd
root at yourhost# for files in `/bin/ls --color=none /etc | grep ^make.conf$`;
do cp $files $files`date +%m%d`.bak && vim $files;

I will just say the edit the make.conf file
Security and practice are a matter of preference, I'm just trying to help.

It's a pointer, not a solution. Besides, who runs without a dedicated Linux
Based firewall running some IP Tables telling anyone trying to connect to
your Xserver or any port that doesn't deal with time mail.

It usually takes more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech.
