On most systems, nobody is a perfectly valid unix name

$ id nobody
return a uid/gid?  Or does it say no such user?

You probably want to do a man smb.conf, and from there type /SECURITY
followed by enter.  That'll get you to the part explaining SECURITY =
SHARE, which should be beneficial for you.
