Indeed. It's nothing personal. We're not your employees. What's to get
perturbed about? I personally DO use SELinux. Everything works, so I don't
bother turning it off. But I can see how it gets in the way for others.

What you said there was really funny. So let's assume said fictional
employer Googles to see what Lamar Owen is up to. What's going to look
