On Fedora 22 (and for many previous versions) I have noticed that, if I log

If I type 'alias' at the console, it lists current aliases. 'root' shows
exactly what Jon quoted above. 'frank' shows no alias for 'rm'.
I had a quick look to see what was setting it, but there is nothing in
/etc/profile or in /etc/bashrc. I don't know where else to check.
