I have two small children. When the younger one is using the computer, the older one will just come in, push him off the chair and take over the computer. The little one can't do anything about it, so he just hits him in the back or the side, then runs away. There is always lots of yelling and whining. I send them both to time out.

Mozilla Firebird, you didn't even ask. You just took it. So, you go to timeout. Firebird Project, you puched your open source brother. We don't hit. So, you go to timeout. Both of you stay there until you apologize ... and no more whining.

If you were my kids, the little one would get the name. He had it first.
