	Use step 4 and if the problem persists and is not secondary to a rogue program/daemon get a 3.5 ft (approx. 1 meter) length of sucker rod* and have a chat with the user in question.

	Sucker rod def. - 3/4, 7/8 or 1in. hardened steel rod, male threaded on each end. 
	Primary use in the oil industry in Western North Dakota and other locations to pump 'suck' oil from oil wells. 
	Secondary uses are for the construction of cattle feed lots and for dealing with the occasional recalcitrant or belligerent individual.
