And do you disable Java and JavaScript in your web browsers?  If you
don't, as you browse many websites you're running unknown programs on
your computer.  While SELinux, or its ilk, are no guarentees that you'll
be safe, they help to make things safer.  External threats to a computer
are not just outsiders trying to connect to a port.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
