We had two customers in the same week a couple of years ago who, in a fit of paranoia, decided Everyone didn't need any access at all - they didn't want everyone going through their stuff. So they set Everyone to No Access, applied to all subfolders, only to find they have a very nice aluminum paperweight afterward. Unit would not boot, they couldn't access anything at all. Had to explain to both of them the concept of Everyone - Everyone includes you. It's like throwing away your car keys to keep everyone from stealing the car. Seems somewhat secure, except for the fact you can't get in either.
