Comment Re:Awful modding here today! (Score 1) 116

All you have to do is set yourself to -1 and you will experience /. in all its glory. Why is an overhaul needed? The answer is before your eyes and you still want to ignore it? Perhaps some inward soul searching is in order? For example, why would you want others to filter content that you are perfectly capable of filtering yourself?

man cp

              cp - copy files and directories

              cp [OPTION]... [-T] SOURCE DEST
              cp [OPTION]... SOURCE... DIRECTORY
              cp [OPTION]... -t DIRECTORY SOURCE...

              Copy SOURCE to DEST, or multiple SOURCE(s) to DIRECTORY.

              Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options

              -a, --archive
                            same as -dR --preserve=all

                            don't copy the file data, just the attributes

                            make a backup of each existing destination file

              -b like --backup but does not accept an argument

                            copy contents of special files when recursive

              -d same as --no-dereference --preserve=links

              -f, --force
                            if an existing destination file cannot be opened, remove it and
                            try again (this option is ignored when the -n option is also

              -i, --interactive
                            prompt before overwrite (overrides a previous -n option)

              -H follow command-line symbolic links in SOURCE

              -l, --link
                            hard link files instead of copying

              -L, --dereference
                            always follow symbolic links in SOURCE

              -n, --no-clobber
                            do not overwrite an existing file (overrides a previous -i

              -P, --no-dereference
                            never follow symbolic links in SOURCE

              -p same as --preserve=mode,ownership,timestamps

                            preserve the specified attributes (default: mode,ownership,time
                            stamps), if possible additional attributes: context, links,
                            xattr, all

                            don't preserve the specified attributes

                            use full source file name under DIRECTORY

              -R, -r, --recursive
                            copy directories recursively

                            control clone/CoW copies. See below

                            remove each existing destination file before attempting to open
                            it (contrast with --force)

                            control creation of sparse files. See below

                            remove any trailing slashes from each SOURCE argument

              -s, --symbolic-link
                            make symbolic links instead of copying

              -S, --suffix=SUFFIX
                            override the usual backup suffix

              -t, --target-directory=DIRECTORY
                            copy all SOURCE arguments into DIRECTORY

              -T, --no-target-directory
                            treat DEST as a normal file

              -u, --update
                            copy only when the SOURCE file is newer than the destination
                            file or when the destination file is missing

              -v, --verbose
                            explain what is being done

              -x, --one-file-system
                            stay on this file system

              -Z set SELinux security context of destination file to default type
                            like -Z, or if CTX is specified then set the SELinux or SMACK
                            security context to CTX

              --help display this help and exit

                            output version information and exit

              By default, sparse SOURCE files are detected by a crude heuristic and
              the corresponding DEST file is made sparse as well. That is the behav
              ior selected by --sparse=auto. Specify --sparse=always to create a
              sparse DEST file whenever the SOURCE file contains a long enough
              sequence of zero bytes. Use --sparse=never to inhibit creation of
              sparse files.

              When --reflink[=always] is specified, perform a lightweight copy, where
              the data blocks are copied only when modified. If this is not possible
              the copy fails, or if --reflink=auto is specified, fall back to a stan
              dard copy.

              The backup suffix is '~', unless set with --suffix or SIM
              PLE_BACKUP_SUFFIX. The version control method may be selected via the
              --backup option or through the VERSION_CONTROL environment variable.
              Here are the values:

              none, off
                            never make backups (even if --backup is given)

              numbered, t
                            make numbered backups

              existing, nil
                            numbered if numbered backups exist, simple otherwise

              simple, never
                            always make simple backups

              As a special case, cp makes a backup of SOURCE when the force and
              backup options are given and SOURCE and DEST are the same name for an
              existing, regular file."

Seems perfectly clear to me.
