Can anyone think of a good way to prevent a user from removing a
symbolic link in their home directory?
By default symbolic links of full permissions and there is now way to
remove them (at least that I am aware of). Since its the users home
directory they can remove them. I looked into acl's but haven't found
an obvious way. A solution which didn't prevent the user from removing
them, but which just made it so a simple rm wouldn't remove them would
be good enough. I just don't want a simple rm to be able to remove
them in order to avoid the number of accidental removals (and then
support requests for me to restore them).
