How do they "get to see" this? By SSH? If so, enabling shell access for users 
causes that. The SSH in CentOS uses no chrooted jails. Meaning: Anyone with 
shell access can see a lot more than good for you or others. That is why most 
people do the sensible thing and don't grant shell access to anyone.

By FTP siteAdmins only see what they're supposed to see and that's basically 
all they really need.
