comment Disable a user's login without disabling the account
When one sets the shell to /bin/false, one prevents using su to act as that user. Additionally, using /bin/false produces no error nor other hint of what just went wrong -- in cases where one does want to prevent even su from being used to get a shell as that user, the shell should be changed to /sbin/nologin which does produce an error.

comment How exactly do people “crack” Unix/Linux Systems?
@justin: I said I was there to see $friend re: a school project, but he was out of the office. I let the VP show me some trivial things about the computer system, and he was too distracted by staring at me to notice that I observed him entering his password. He had legitimate access to the drive I was supposed to access to win the bet.
