In addition to the other two replies I've seen answering this, /media is
used by the auto-mounting system. It'll mount such media as a
subdirectory inside /media. If you mount something there, then the
auto-mounter mounts something else on top, you can paint yourself into a
corner. Whereas /mnt is ignored, by it, and you're free to manually do
what you like with it.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored. I
read messages from the public lists.
