That's a really good point actually, and more people should be made
aware of pkill.
pkill -u username
will kill all processes owned by that user.
pkill -u username programname
will kill all proceesses called programname owned by that user.
So killing all of perry's bash processes is easy: pkill -u perry bash.
If you just typed 'killall bash' you'd be likely to kill your own bash
process as well!
