Is this a serious question?
Access to group disk can be easily controlled by the
system administrator. On some systems, only root
has this access, on other systems other ids also have
this access. It's possible that all accounts will have
this access, but that's extremely rare.
That's not true for "other" -- everyone has access read
and write access to things with 666 permissions.
Do you need this explained further?
