Somehow, I get the feeling that the original poster's site will discover
KVM switches around 2008 or so. ;)

That's exactly my point. I don't necessarily approve of this list being used to help clueless script kiddies r00t systems, but the information needed to accomplish that feat is *identical* to the the information needed by clueless sysadmins to prevent against it.

What if I had been the original poster, and had phrased my question from the standpoint of a system administrator requesting help in hardening a Windows 2003 server that has to be physically accessible? Would you have "seen through my ploy" and not helped me?

This list is about helping people who are interested in computer security get *better* at computer security. I don't see how we can maintain that double standard without causing more harm than good.
