Comment Typo in the following sentence:

"The issue is triggered when the restricted-gid feature is used. A malicious user can change 
the permissions on their home directory to deny themelves access"

"themelves" should probably be "themselves" unless your network really is plagued by malicious 
elves. Thanks for the great site!
