Suffice it to say that this is someone's idea of a dirty trick disguised as a practical joke. The rm command removes files and directories. The OP is trying to trick novices into wiping their entire file systems.

The next time that someone posts such a helpful hint, please launch the Terminal and type man {command} at the command prompt for documentation of the command(s).

I contacted Apple support via email and they returned with a lesser known trick below. It actually worked, and now iPhoto and other applications open instantly, I just do this every time I start using the computer. I even tried it on my Macbook Pro 13inch, and now programs open instantly vs taking 2-3 seconds, and I wanted to share it for other people to know. See if it helps you too.

Reported the post. Not funny or cool.
"Slow vehicle speeds with frequent stops would signal traffic congestion, for instance."

uh... it could also signal that my Mom is at the wheel...
