By all means raise your securelevel if you're happy with firewall rules, and don't ever need to change flags on files, but really, unless you expect root to be broken, it's kinda annoying. Just disallow root access to EVERYTHING, ssh, telnet (if you're mad enough to run it facing the net), ftp, etc. Chris -- A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
