baggy pantsing v.
[Georgia Tech] A "baggy pantsing" is
used to reprimand hackers who incautiously leave their terminals
unlocked. The affected user will come back to find a post from
them on internal newsgroups discussing exactly how baggy their
pants are, an accepted stand-in for "unattentive user who left
their work unprotected in the clusters". A properly-done baggy
pantsing is highly mocking and humorous. It is considered bad form
to post a baggy pantsing to off-campus newsgroups or the more
technical, serious groups. A particularly nice baggy pantsing may
be "claimed" by immediately quoting the message in full, followed
by your sig; this has the added benefit of keeping the embarrassed
victim from being able to delete the post. Interesting
baggy-pantsings have been done involving adding commands to login
scripts to repost the message every time the unlucky user logs in;
Unix boxes on the residential network, when cracked, oftentimes
have their homepages replaced (after being politely backed up to
another file) with a baggy-pants message; .plan files are also
occasionally targeted. Usage: "Prof. Greenlee fell asleep in the
Solaris cluster again; we baggy-pantsed him to
git.cc.class.2430.flame." Compare derf.
