Joel put it best as:

C:\Users\joel\recipes> hg push
pushing to http://joel.example.com:8000/
searching for changes
abort: push creates new remote heads!
(did you forget to merge? use push -f to force)

Ahhh!! Failure! By the way… that message you see there? The one that says use push -f to force? That’s terrible advice. Never, ever, EVER use push -f to force. You will regret it.
