[Question] New Pacman alias

We already have a few pacman aliases for installing software.
Why not one for removing/uninstalling?

alias purge="sudo pacman -Rsn"

Removing packages can give you "disastreous" results as it can delete too much if you are a bit too fast.

Therefore I leave it up to the users to make an alias.

They should read the manual of pacman -R and decide what to do themselves.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
