This back door is a real pain and can lead to all kinds of operational
problems. I'd think about removing public authority to the QSYSOPR message
queue. I think the key authority is data/execute. Of course this will shut
them out completely so they won't be able to answer the printer messages
either, so if they currently do that you will have to come up with a
workaround for that too.

You may want to set up a dummy user and experiment with specific
authorities to that before changing public authorities, so you can be sure
there are no adverse effects. Don't forget to delete the dummy when you've
finished with it. ;-)
