Why the *shudder* at /var/lib/mysql (sounds like a rock concert!)

Is that because it's where Fedora puts the db or something else?

(Since /var can be the object of a runaway error log, I create a ~/mysql 
folder, copy the contents of /var/lib/mysql there, and then make 
/var/lib/mysql a symlink to ~/mysql (which is on a separate /home 
partition, too)).

         Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
          I may wish to offend you again in the future.
