I don't believe that shit above. like bill stated root can read any file
it wants so why go changing ownership and group when you don't have to.
let's get our information true and correct people, and yes I do it too
so that's as much my fault as the next person's.
the only time you'd want to chown a file is if you've copied it from one
users's dir to another and u can't access it for whatever reason.
oh well,
plenty more misinformation to go around I suppose,
