Interestingly this is one of the first things I turn off when I log into 
a Linux box along with the other default aliases.  One of the biggest 
user experience differences I find between Linux and FreeBSD is that you 
need to turn all this stuff on with BSD (if you want it) where most 
Linux distros assume you want it on by default.  I prefer BSD's approach.

Anyhoo, welcome Stephen :)
