Type 'man mg', 'man vi', 'man ed', 'man sed', 'man grep', 'man
kill', 'man inetd', and 'man inetd.conf'. That should get you
started down the road to finding a solution which will turn off
those things in the "some" seconds you requested.
We ain't windows, we will not have a "click here" button to do
everything for you.

Exactly, we don't claim to have one button. Use the tools unix

That's quite irresponsible. Then I'd say you (or they) have comming
to yourself (or them) whatever comes down the pike. That's like saying
that you know lots of people that drive cars, and they don't have time
to think about safety. (That may be true, defensive drivers are rare
in today's society).
