I am not sure that it is wise to make spaming one person
so easy ;-)

It might make sense to add some more information into
the message. For example:

    + uname -a
    + whether the log was generated using root access

Also people might feel more comfortable if this feature:

     + prints the message
     + printks where it is being sent
     + ask yes/no before doing so

I guess that this was not intended.
