how can a guy who doesn't know how to use the rm (remove) command have a launchpad karma of close to 25.000?

answer: by claiminig to provide answers in the tracker when adding nothing of value

In the case of Mr Marcus Aurelius it's probably bad karma because he blames and badmouths others for his own inadequacies while racing after these virtual points. Good luck with that.

To provide a technical answer of my own to the question at hand:

As LtWorf correctly pointed out, you can use the 'rm' command from the command-line. Another way is to use the context menu (right-click) from inside nautilus or thunar or probably most any other file manager. It's really no different to other file operations.

Can you help with this problem?
