Had you bothered to pull your head out of your ass and actually check
the archives, you'd find that I'm not only aware of existence and uses
of chattr, but I've also recommended its use more than once to those

And if you had a semblance of clue you'd know that chattr is not a
generic solution, as it is not available on all supported filesystems.
