Was it mounted before you did that?


No. That's why I guess. But still it removed a directory I had no write
permission to.

I believe unix in general has always done that. you can remove files
you don't have specific write permission to if you are the owner,
it'll just prompt.

from my redhat machine:
[zep@scooter junk]$ touch a
[zep@scooter junk]$ chmod 0 a
[zep@scooter junk]$ ls -l
total 0
---------- 1 zep zep 0 Dec 13 09:22 a
[zep@scooter junk]$ rm a
rm: remove write-protected regular empty file `a'? y
[zep@scooter junk]$ ls -l
total 0

Even the Magic 8 ball has an opinion on email clients: Outlook not so good.
