comment How bad is it really to install Linux on one big partition?
I think a more important reason for /root to be outside /home is that on some installations /home will be on a network drive. In case of a problem mounting it over the network, root's files remain accessible. (This may be compared to how there's usually a text editor in /bin, in case /usr won't mount.) I suspect this is a more common scenario in practice, these days, than /home filling up all the way.

comment Does a company have implied right to crawl my website?
@jcanker Those two cases are about copyright infringement claims. In the behavior of crawlers that cache content, like those operated by Google and archive.org, it makes perfect sense that copyright issues come into play. But McAfee SiteAdvisor is not actually copying and storing (much less making publicly available) content from websites it accesses, is it? Though I'm not a lawyer, I think this distinction gives us reason to very strongly doubt that either case is in any way applicable to the behavior of a system like SiteAdvisor, regardless of whether or not it respects robots.txt.
