Thanks Erich for pionting this out. This is the FreeBSD USERS LIST,
not the elite exchange. I I was posting this on some expert list like
the kernel list or some other more technical list I could understand
the attitude, but this is the user's list. We are NOT required to know
the details, just share experiences and try to help one another, not
put other people down for trying to solve our issues as users.

What is really frustrating is that it actually happened and I try to
do everything by the book. I don't do any fancy or strange things, so
something caused these directories to be moved through NORMAL use of
the system, regardless if some people believe it or not, I could care
less. It happened, period, and if someone wants to help fine, if not
they should just shut up.

Thanks again for pointing this out. We are the users, we are the
people that keep this project alive and share the good.
