Why does nautilus create folders in my home directory by default?



Hi people,

I have searched the mailinglist back to 25-01-2007 using the keywords
"public folder", "templates folder", "downloads folder" "creating
directories", "creating folders", "nautilus directories" and a few other
 combinations and I am a little surprised I didn't find any previous
posting about the following (ie. I tried to avoid getting a
re-discussion about this):

Why does gnome/nautilus/vfs(?) create three directories in my home
directory by default (using F7t4)? I _really_ dislike this behaviour. I
can't find any knobs that would allow me to turn this off or _at least_
allow me to change the folders they point to (Downloads, Public and
Templates).

I don't know about anyone else but I find it hard to imagine that anyone
 actually likes this behaviour; after all, who is not annoyed like hell
about directories like "My eBooks", "My Pictures", "My Music", etc that
incessantly re-create themselves in your home directory on some other
operating system whose name I shall not mention? It is _my_ home
directory, not some scratchpad for badly designed software, excuse the
venom.

So, long story short: If it has been discussed before, my humble
apologies. If it has to be in there due to upstream changes, then where
are the knobs? Can I turn it off?


Grtz,

Rubin.
