How do I act like my username / myself is not exist in the unix system? Because as I ask the question before, some user can make other people can't finger them, now I wanna know how to make myself act like not exist in the entire system.
i.e. no body can "finger" me, "last" me, etc.......
Because I saw one of the user can do this.

Probably you can, but ist a huge work to do.
Just some example how someone else can see if you are on the system:

  1) ps -euf
  2) w
  3) who
  4) rwho
  5) last (or lastcom, lastcmd, whatever your OS supports)
  6) cat /etc/passwd; find / -uid xxx -ls|grep "`date +%b`"
  and much more ..

You either have to patch all these commands, or restrict other users to use them.

so you're not root ;-)
If you have no root access to the system, there is no way to hide yourself.
THERE IS NO WAY AROUND THIS.

This question looks suspiciously like "When I have hacked into someone else's computer, how do I mke myself invisible".

braveheart, lets hack them into UNIX, and they're always seen ;-)
Probably it's going worse if they get root access.
