SubjectDelete user

Hi,

I had written a shell to delete one user. But I do not know
if I had done what all I should do to delete user.

Any comment is appreciated.
Please send directly to me, Now I am not on this list.

if [ $# -ne 1 ]; then
echo "Usage: $0 user_account_you_want_to_delete"
exit 1

#delete the user home directory

if [ -d /home/$1 ]; then
rm -r /home/$1
echo delete the /home/$1
else
echo No such user
exit 1

#modify the passwd file
