    Why is it that when people first see something on their hard disk they don't
    think "what does it do?" they think "how do I delete it?"

    Those articles explain what the folder does, why it's so big, and why
    deleting random parts of it is probably a bad idea.

    You neither need nor want to delete this system folder. Leave it alone.

    For the same reason you'll get support requests wanting to "disable
    off-line mode" to resolve an unstable network connection.
