[rt-users] I am not content with the name "StealTicket"

As a unix sysadmin for an Oracle farm and a Christian myself, I'm mildly 
amused by the fact that I have to 'kill' processes all the time.  But 
it's a purely semantic issue and I'd feel rather absurd to want to muddy 
the language with this politically correct rewording.  I'd argue that 
the spirit of what's happening here is not at odds with the spirit of 
the biblical mandate.  Not that I'm a vegetarian or something, but when 
you eat fish, you also kill them.  I think that to split hairs to this 
level would be an injustice and an insult to the spirit of scripture.
