User log out as Root
 
Hallo,
is it possible to log out User as root ?
We have got a server with a lot of user working on it. It can be, that one user makes strangely things on the server. I am root and see it, now i would kick down the user. How can i do that?

not the best wording for a question but if you want to force a user to log out, personally i would just kill their login shell and it will all fall to pieces for them. use "ps axu" to find their first "bash" entry and then use the kill command to nuke it.

It would be nice to send a message first, so he/she can save his work.
