oh something else:
I think if i specify the / at the end of symlink it will actually
delete(or try to in this case) all sub folders if it can. Is that
normal? and if it is, should that be the desired behavior, if its a ln
-s link shouldnt it only delete the link rather than the contents of
what its linking to?
I think that's expected. adding a trailing / will force the resolution
of the link.

I was very surprised by my not being able to delete or modify the
perms on this file. Also:
I bet you're dealing with a immutable directory. see chflags(1).
