The poster had a problem where SELinux stopped printing (changing from
enforcing to permissive made it work). I made the point that they might
want to fix it, and a hint about where to look. Or if they didn't care
about it, they may as well turn it off. It's not doing any good in
permissive mode, and can still cause problems.

Hey what?! That's what I said.
Enforcing - SELinux on
Permissive - SELinux pretending to do something
Disabled - SELinux off
