Well it is not required to use such configuration. You can just stick with

security = user

and then do something like this:

   comment = free access folder
   browseable = yes
   path = /home/freeaccess
   public = yes
   writeable = yes
   create mode = 0644
   force user = adhocuser
   force group = adhocuser

just create such adhocuser into the server disabling it shell access
and then do a:

chown adhocuser /home/freeaccess
