@cindex risky variable
Some variables, such as @code{load-path}, are considered
particularly @dfn{risky}: there is seldom any reason to specify them
as local variables, and changing them can be dangerous. Even if you
enter @kbd{!} at the confirmation prompt, Emacs will not record any
values as safe for these variables. If you really want to record safe
values for these variables, do it directly by customizing
as local variables, and changing them can be dangerous. If a file
contains only risky local variables, Emacs neither offers nor accepts
@kbd{!} as input at the confirmation prompt. If some of the local
variables in a file are risky, and some are only potentially unsafe, you
can enter @kbd{!} at the prompt. It applies all the variables, but only
marks the non-risky ones as safe for the future. If you really want to
record safe values for risky variables, do it directly by customizing
@samp{safe-local-variable-values} (@pxref{Easy Customization}).
