First. My apologies for this to you other list members.

I never said that I am the best. But I have never run around spreading FUD
about something that I know absolutely nothing about as you have done here.

SELinux is designed to help protect you from yourself. How? BY not letting
applications do strange, possibly dangerous things to your computer. Like
writing to certain files. Like accessing things that are not normally a good
thing to access.

Like Windows allows.

Why would you think that this is a NSA plot so that they can spy on your
computer? Why would you think that you and your computer is that important?
How could you think that they have the time to do this? Or the resources to do
this? Or even care about you?

I think that before I made a complete ass of myself on this list, as you have
done, I would have spent a few minutes researching SELinux. And then, if I
still had questions, I would have asked clear questions and fallen into FUD
spreading about what I was reading.

Any one that would try to remove SElinux, as you said that you did, is an
idiot. Over 750 packages would be removed? One of which is the kernel? So tell
me. How stupid it that?

But then. I will concede that making things, Linux and other things, idiot
proof can be difficult. Idiots are so resourceful.

Go play with your blocks.
