  From  Jargon  File  (4.2.3,  23  NOV  2000)  [jargon]: 
 
  LART  //  Luser  Attitude  Readjustment  Tool.  1.  n.  In  the 
  collective  mythos  of  {scary  devil  monastery},  this  is  an  essential  item 
  in  the  toolkit  of  every  {BOFH}.  The  LART  classic  is  a  2x4  or  other  large 
  billet  of  wood  usable  as  a  club,  to  be  applied  upside  the  head  of  spammers 
  and  other  people  who  cause  sysadmins  more  grief  than  just  naturally 
  goes  with  the  job.  Perennial  debates  rage  on  alt.sysadmin.recovery  over 
  what  constitutes  the  truly  effective  LART;  knobkerries,  semiautomatic 
  weapons,  flamethrowers,  and  tactical  nukes  all  have  their  partisans. 
  Compare  {clue-by-four}.  2.  v.  To  use  a  LART.  Some  would  add  "in  malice", 
  but  some  sysadmins  do  prefer  to  gently  lart  their  users  as  a  first  (and 
  sometimes  final)  warning.  3.  interj.  Calling  for  one's  LART,  much  as 
  a  surgeon  might  call  "Scalpel!".  4.  interj.  [rare]  Used  in  {flame}s  as 
  a  rebuke.  "LART!  LART!  LART!"
