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.
