It is not recommended to give jenni ops. If you do give jenni ops, you are doing so at your own RISK.

I'm getting "Refusing to run as root". What do I do? Don't run jenni as root. It's a terrible idea, as it opens you up to a huge security risk. Should someone find a way to do something nasty with jenni, it may do much more damage if run as root. Please do yourself and everyone else a favor and run it under another user account.
