I log users off like this in fl_TT

skill -15 -u user || skill -9 -u user

but I noticed Eric uses this method in his purge_users script

# first do it nicely
pkill -u user
# wait a couple seconds
sleep 2s
# now do it the hard way
pkill -9 -u user

are there any differences or advantages to these methods??
I ask because I'm getting reports of the first method not working 100%
of the time.
