Game: Surviving Mars

So I was dealing with this user on my website called "LeafyOne," who was obviously probing the site, but not masking his ip address. I thought, this is an easy one, why not call him out on it for the fun of it.
Then I received a couple hundred emails, and they all said one thing:
"I am root"

Iconoclasts would be my pick.

As for a joke SPOILER: SWEARING:

Spoiler, click me
Steve: I propose we change the command MAN to FUCKING
Elen: What!? That's stupid, MAN makes the most sense. It stands for manual, duh.
Steve: Yeah but most linux user are men and they never read manuals instead they try everything else then end up swearing.
Michael: Yeah, usually end up typing FUCKING FUCK FUCK, I always forget there is usually a MAN page.
Chris: Hmm yeah sounds good to me.
No fucking entry for hell

I was about to compile a great joke about linux here, but it seems to depend on good sense of humour. Iconoclasts.

I would like Surviving Mars if possible.

Linux joke:

At dinner at a Japanese restaurant, the person next to me said she wanted to work with abused children. Since we had not yet received the tempura, I responded, "If battered shrimps are your interest, we should have some here soon."
