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.

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