I think a quote from Alice's PDP-10 is in order.

> After the ordeal, Ann took us back downstairs and left us with the CLU

> want your jsys manual and your ROLM DTI".  I said "Ann, I can
> understand your wanting my jsys manual so I won't remind the CLU
> hackers of grody things like operating systems, but what do you want
> my DTI for?" and she said "Kid, we don't want any VTS errors".  I said
> "Ann, did you think I was going to try to crash the system for
> littering?"  Ann said that she was making sure, and friends, Ann was,
> 'cause she cleared all my left-hand privs bits so I couldn't logout.
> And she disabled the TREPLACE command so I couldn't crock in an XCT
> [0] instruction, cause an illegal instruction interrupt to MEXEC, and
> sneak into MDDT.  Yeah, Ann was making sure, and it was about four or
> five hours later that Chiappa (remember Chiappa?  This song's never
> even mentioned Chiappa) Chiappa came by and with a few gratuitous
> insults to the CLU hackers bailed us out of there
