Yes, I agree.  One more for it being a good thing to have.  And one more
to say the nay sayers are in the minority.

I see a *few* people *claiming* it does no good, I haven't seem proof of
that (and such proof would have to be related to current release
software to be valid - claims about SELinux flaws from a few years ago
are as invalid as claims about similarly old faults in other software
that has since been updated).

I see those people also *falsely* *claiming* that it *only* serves a
purpose on already compromised machines.  That is but one thing it could
perform.

I see those complaining about it are running very old versions, and are
not experienced with the current ones.

I see some of the complaints coming from people who do everything as the
root user.

All of that does nothing for the credibility of those complainers.

For the *FEW* users who don't want it, there's plenty of other distros
without it.  Stop trying to subvert this one, and use one that already
suits your purposes.
