[RndTbl] rm -r crippled in Red Hat 8

In /root/.bashrc  I prefixed '#'  thus:
#alias rm='rm -i'
Now it's just fine. I can do rm - r
and wipe out my entire system!
I should have figured this out myself,
but I was distracted by /etc/bashrc.
It's a lot more complex then /root/.bashrc
Anyway, the problem forced me to learn
that Natualis can be useful.
  Thanks to you all for the help!
