This is so retarded. Load linux onto a 386/sx15 and run a compile. Shoot,
you just dos'ed the system. This is why you need to place appropriate limits
on users, preferably using PAM, ulimit is bash specific, if the user chsh's,
well whoops.

Between this and the MS bashing thread I think it's time for moderation,
which of course introduces a large latency issue which kind of sucks.
Perhaps the addition of a new moderated list to supplement this one is in
order.
