Ok, but only if you will be more verbose about how `Removing' works
for you.  hehe : )

In my case I tried to remove an empty directory with:
place cursor on empty dir
! rm -rf *

Just now also tried
! rmdir 
! rm 
In both cases, with and without asterisk
The directory is unaffected and no error is thrown.
