Fortune? Oh that isn't part of /etc/motd. It is just a call to
fortune(6) via .login or .profile.
It comes in via the standard dot files in /usr/share/skel (which were
probably copied when you created the users with some tool).
Just comment it out in those files (~/.profile, ~/.login).
Yes, I have a hard day :-) I forgot about .profile and skel. Thank you 
for your time. And sorry for the noise.
