[sclug] Fsck after an unexpected shutdown

I have an ext3 filesystem, if my machine is powered off unexpectedly the
next time it boots up it asks me if I want to do an fsck, shouldn't
journalling negate the need for this?  I read somewhere that if you do hit
'Y' for an fsck and you have a journalled filesystem you may risk screwing
things up.  Is that true?
