Jeebus.  Do you tell people with airbags to not bother using their
brakes, just go ahead and hit a tree to stop?

ext3 decreases the likelihood of you losing data doing this, but it does
not make it IMPOSSIBLE for you to lose data doing this.

There are many other better solutions.  One, if they will always be
shutting down from the console, is to edit /etc/inittab so that
ctrl-alt-del does a shutdown -h instead of a shutdown -r.
