Description (partial)

The command clear subscriber when given in conjunction with a "|" does not ask for confirmation even when no autoconfirm is set.

This inadvertently clears the subscribers without confirming.

So if the above mentioned command is executed but the intention is to 'not confirm', subscribers will be lost without any error or warning messages.

The issue is seen when an invalid command is inadvertently used.

The pipe ("|") should not be supported with the clear command. If used, it clears the subscribers without prompting for confirmation.
