I do; I almost never use -save, replace-. This is virtually a firm

won't let me accidentally replace data (or exit without saving
changed data). You suggested, too, that such features might be
switchable -- to be turned on for beginners. I like them (or depend
on them) just as they are, and I'm far from a beginner.
Recently I started to
think it over and wrote my Stata top ten wishlist.
Nearly same thing as (7)
To my mind all options (like ",force", ",clear", or ",replace") to prevent
data loss are of no real use. Or does anybody use e.g. "save" without
",replace" on a regular basis?
The point is that your experience with the way you use Stata may be
very different from other people's. You seem to be asking for Stata
to accommodate your needs, which may conflict with other people's needs.
