why doesn't the home directory have the sticky bit set?
I read about sticky bits from several sources, and they all say that when the sticky bit is set on a directory, then any files in that directory can only be deleted by the owner of the file, and not the owner of that folder. My questions are: why is it that the sticky bit is not set on the home directory? Also, why the heck doesn't it do that by default when other people are allowed to write to it? Why on Earth would I want the default? :confused:
