Error on man page
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.
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.
