I'm a little confused and am wondering if I am reading this incoorectly.

This sounds like the default is to set up the cluster in such a way that
it'll corrupt itself.

Shouldn't it be the other way around? That the default should leave you
safe and you have the option of running naked through the poison ivy
if that's your idea of fun.

Or did I miss something?
