Unfortunately, the use of FTP results in everybody else on the 'Net 
being able to access that user's home directory, too.

Which is worse:

     o letting properly authorized users have standard access to your 
system as it's designed, the same way people have had access on Unix 
systems for three decades;

     o or letting everybody on the planet have access to all your users' 
private files?
