Wrong. You personally might not care. Generalizing that nobody cares just because you don't care is a flawed conclusion.

That depends on who started the fuss. It was you who dismissed my suggestion as unintelligent in the first place, remember?

Well unintelligent way is to change the permission of those file every time users create anything in it.
You don't get to make that judgment unless you provide an alternative and explain why your alternative is the better/smarter way to go. If you do all that I take no offense in discussing/adapting the alternative. Simple rules of logic.

I also specifically requested that you provide more details on the problem here and here again. Depending on the problem the might be easy or will take some more effort to handle. I am not going to provide you with several solutions in advance, which still might not be suited because you have not clarified your requirement. The least you can do is to give an accurate description of the problem.

And BTW, simply yelling does not make your statement more credible. Yelling, and rhetorical finesse for that matter, might convince people to adapt to your views on good faith. This works whenever dealing with a non-technical problem. However, when dealing with a technical problem it does not really matter how many people you convince. Your solution either works or it simply fails.

OK Lets make it loud and clear , first about the remark "unintelligent way" neither it was and nor it is towards your suggestion of anacron.If that offended then it was pure case of lost in translation.
Second I'm working on anacron AND I THANK YOU FOR THIS AND YOUR TIME.
