Um, but it really is because they shouldn't have let the folder become visible no matter what, even if it's a third party application that does it.

I disagree, it's extremely important to be able to see these folders if you need to work on macs.

Well, then maybe some sort of option should be there for advanced users to display the folder so casual users don't accidentally mess with it.

They could've just done what M$ did and make a little popup saying "If you are an idiot don't mess around in this folder"

when working with mac os x, i need access to those usr, var, private, and all these other folders. so it would be helpful for me if it was visible anyway :P

Yeah, the WINDOWS system files have that. You can still view them, but it's your own fault if you do something stupid.
