An inverted synonym is "read only".
If this parameter is "no", then users of a service may not create or modify
files in the service's directory.
Note that a printable service ("printable = yes") will *ALWAYS* allow
writing to the directory (user privileges permitting), but only via spooling
Default: writeable = no
read only = no
writeable = yes
write ok = yes
writeable=no is the same as read only=yes
Only users in the staff group can write
If this is not correct, please pount out the error of my logic.

Doesn't the 'write list' parameter mean that it's writeable for members
of the group 'staff,' but not writeable (read-only) for anyone else? I
hope so, because I have used that structure for shares on a new file
server I have set up...
