That's pretty much a standard disclaimer, any time anyone with experience is recommending you manually run a db query. Along with either/or, "Make sure you do a backup first!"

Could sound ominous, but really it's not. It's just part of "best practices" not to do stuff like that on your live site without first trying it on a tester. And it's "best practices" to recommend testing first.

You never let us know if you ran the query or not, and if so did it get you where you wanted to be.
