Right.

No, you are tearing sentences out of context.

If SELinux was transparently working (Which it doesn't on Fedora on many
situations), nobody would name it "infection".
=> This is users complaining about SELinux's usability, based on their
personal experiences with the Fedora implementation.

If SELinux was such an "terrific and compelling approach", upstream
Linux and other distros would have adopted it _years ago_ with standing
ovations - Fact is: Nobody did.
=> This is developers and maintainers having doubts on SELinux.
