I am for educating users instead of fixing something that's not broken on server-end,
or as someone suggested, turn-off the personal web option then remove the personal
"web" folder.  It's not that difficult to include in your instruction for user to use WinSCP
or such to go to /home/www.yourdomain.com/web directory.
