    That is a much worse (and potentially disastrous) habit.

It is safe to run root if you do not expect anyone to break into your
home office when you are there; it is definitely a disasterous habit
if you expect a stranger or a malicious friend or a well-intentioned
but careless person (as happened to me in 1984) come to your terminal
when you have stepped way from it.
