Default Error on man page

Title: Error on man page







Hi


I discovered a similar problem early this week and a colleage on irc was told it was a copy and paste error.




in man syslogd, the following can be found:




************* 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.** Sec-



************* ondary uses are for the construction of cattle feed lots and for dealing with the occasional recalcitrant or belligerent individual.





Regards

Its not an error, read the previous lines:
5. 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.


Its an attempt at a joke by the author of the man page.
