Calling other people "stupid" when they are right and you are wrong is,
er, stupid.

Just because something is in its own partition does not mean that it is
in the root directory, unless that partition is mounted at the root of
the file system. Even if it were true (which it is not because the boot
partition is never mounted as the root of any file system) it would be
misleading because the terminology "root or / directory" unambiguously
refers to the root of the file system.

I'm frankly amazed that there is a single experienced member of this
list that still takes the time to read your posts and reply to correct
bad information. You should be thankful, really; but I suppose that's
too much to hope for.
