I'm sorry, but if that's the impression you have, you are much mistaken. This is not only advisable, it can be dangerous. Stop and think about it for a second. Why would they make an operating system where you had to type one command before any other command you type? Doesn't make sense, does it? Also, remember that you are authenticating each time you do this, even though it may be set up so that you don't need to use your password each and every time, which ever command you use with sudo gets elevated to root status. A little reading will tell you all you need to know. I don't like it when people spread information that could harm other people's machines or harm them in some way, accidentally is one thing, but if you just say oh its ok, you're being intentionally ignorant. Then, what happens if someone inexperienced comes along and sees this and tries it, maybe nothing, maybe they type sudo rm -rf * from the root directory, then bye bye machine.
