This "utility" is built upon a fundamental misunderstanding of why the Trash exists in the first place. Automatically emptying the Trash at regular intervals without any user involvement defeats the entire purpose of the Trash. All this really does is take away the ability to recover a file you might have deleted accidentally,

What about someone who prefers Trash being auto-emptied after sufficient time (of their choosing) for an opportunity to recover accidentally deleted files from it elapses?

A comment from one of my users: "This is one of those apps I call a "One Trick Pony". It basically does one thing, empty your Trash. You can set it for regular delete or Secure delete. You can set it to empty your trash at a time of day, time interval or an event like when your Mac starts up or wakes up from sleep. It works great and I'm glad I picked it up!"
