    I was outraged to find the following code inside /scripts/fixmysql:

    #please please don't chattr +i /etc/chkserv.d

    WHAT?!?!?! The immutable bit is the only protection we have against Cpanel's notorious interference in system administration! I need that bit set on specific files, particularly because I use xinetd to run ProFTPd, and I HAVE to change /etc/chkserv.d/proftpd to fit my custom configuration. And I have other files that I've "fixed" to fit my specific needs, and I DON'T want Cpanel to mess with.

    Needless to say, when I checked, my custom chkservd file had been reset to the default!!! Luckily, xinetd hadn't stopped working since then, 'cause it wouldn't have been brought back up!

    So why don't we set a new rule? "Cpanel CANNOT do a chattr -i on ANY FILE, EVER!" It's the ONLY protection we have against BIG BROTHER Cpanel!

    To Cpanel programmers: so what if you think it breaks Cpanel? It was OUR choice, so it's OUR problem!
