[nSLUG] Shared server qualms

All of my experience with Linux has been on boxes where I've pretty well
had the only account. I'm now working on a shared system in Edmonton where
I'm thinking about locating a client's web site. I have SSH access.
I can move up the directory tree and see all the other users directories,
the contents thereof, and individual files, such as today.html. Permissions
are such that I can't edit or copy them. (I checked.)
I can also list the contents of etc/passwd.
Call me naive, but is this normal, or should I bail on this arrangement
before going any further? It's a BSD system and the provider is NetKnow
