Of course, we can!  I was just questioning whether it
was a metaphor or a personification.  Since a metaphor
is a comparison between two things and personification
gives humanlike qualities to non humans.

Sorry to ask, but what is UTA? 

I know what STD is (Sexually Transmitted Disease).  

BTW, selinux setroubleshoot is very nice and it helps
tremendously when dealing with issues.  It helped
fixed a bug on Rawhide dealing with maxima:

I am not an expert on selinux, but I am learning and
cannot complain against it.  I know that it can be a
pain sometimes, but its intentions are good.  That is
what matters for me.  

Best Regards,

Antonio
