Ras, you've put forth a great effort showcasing the dangers of rooting an Android phone. Excellent. You've enlightened us with the worst-case scenarios of otherwise taking control of one's own property. I'll say it again: it's irrelevant what the user wants to do with his/her phone. What is relevant, however, is the question of "how do I root my phone so I am fully capable of removing stock applications?"
While many (myself included) appreciate your warning, you have to realize that rooting Android devices is becoming more common and acceptable. It's just another way these phones separate themselves from the iPhone, and can be pretty awesome. If you can't say anything because you're a "loyal U.S. Cellular employee" then offer nothing. But, I wouldn't use scare tactics to prevent curious users from hacking their phone.
