 for lart
From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

      Luser Attitude Readjustment Tool.
      1. n. In the collective mythos of scary devil monastery, this is an
      essential item in the toolkit of every BOFH. The LART classic is a 2x4 or
      other large billet of wood usable as a club, to be applied upside the head
      of spammers and other people who cause sysadmins more grief than just
      naturally goes with the job. Perennial debates rage on
      alt.sysadmin.recovery over what constitutes the truly effective LART;
      knobkerries, automatic weapons, flamethrowers, and tactical nukes all have
      their partisans. Compare clue-by-four.
      2. v. To use a LART. Some would add ?in malice?, but some sysadmins do
      prefer to gently lart their users as a first (and sometimes final) warning.
      3. interj. Calling for one's LART, much as a surgeon might call ?Scalpel!?.
      4. interj. [rare] Used in flames as a rebuke. ?LART! LART! LART!?
