There are quite a few people on this thread posting unfounded attacks
against SELinux whose contents lead those who are in the know to
believe that these individuals have no understand of what SELinux is,
or how it behaves. At this point, it's likely that you may have just
been mistaken for one of them.
As an aside, use of SELinux is far less complicated than this thread
would have you believe - more importantly, disabling it is trivial if
you do not need its protection.
