 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
          4. interj. [rare] Used in flames as a rebuke. "LART! LART! LART!"
