@VikingKong No the real headline should be

"Don't hit enter too fast when copy-pasting commands from a website. Read what you pasted first."

Which in my opinion should be commonplace practice.

@Naughtylus @VikingKong That's false. The paste can include a newline.

If you try the examples from that website, you'll notice that you don't have to hit enter for them to be executed!

@hirnbrot @VikingKong I did try them, and I did have to hit enter.

Maybe that's what the author meant when they talked about zsh fixing the issue, my bad.
