motd
file containing message(s) of the day

The file /etc/motd is normally displayed by login(1) after a user has logged in but before the shell is run. It is generally used for important system-wide announcements. During system startup, a line containing the kernel version string is prepended to this file.
Individual users may suppress the display of this file by creating a file named “.hushlogin” in their home directories or through login.conf(5).
