I had a folder called blah. I must have messed up some terminal command, and I inadvertantly created a seemingly infinite (i.e. very very large) number of nested subfolders within blah, each named blah. So, inside blah, was a folder named blah, and inside that was a folder named blah, and inside that was a folder named blah and....you get the idea.
I tried to delete the whole mess, but when I empty my trash, it persists! How can I get rid of it?

Okay, that solved it, except that I had to input rm -rf ~/.Trash/*
and NOT "Trashes." It accepted your version of the command, but it didn't do anything discernible. I noticed that entering Trashe and trying to press tab to autocomplete didn't work, suggesting that maybe Trashes doesn't exist. However, trying to autocomplete with fewer letters typed indicated to me that Trash DOES exist, and so I went ahead with that and it worked.
