    This parental control support is contingent upon the malcontent library being present.
    Very funny. Wonder how you upgrade to the "overbearing-nanny-state" package? Good too see these folks have time to work on the important stuff.

      Just because you let your kids watch hardcore porn doesn't mean the rest of us are like that

        a) mine are grown and gone, they'll watch what they want I guess; b) I'm not knocking parental control as a concept; however c) would I really want the geniuses behind Outreachy running it? and d) shouldn't they be trying to trim a bit of the Gnome fat instead of adding to it?

        And, e) I'm mainly just disappointed that system-D isn't running the parental controls already. And f) naming the library "malcontent" is still funny.

          Yeah, that is pretty hilarious.

          And do you want the other side controlling it either...they Reach Out and grab em' by the pussy, you know what I sayin'?

          What Gnome fat? If anything, Gnome needs more content. My proof of that is there are currently 120 pages of extensions.

            I'm not a GNOME user, but it seems like this is just adding the ability to access what's already in GNOME Software when you create an account. I wouldn't consider that fat.

            Oh, and how do Outreachy and "overbearing-nanny-state" have anything to do with this topic? It seems like you are really, really stretching things to fit in your political worldview. No one is overbearing and forcing to you to use parental control. And if you distrust anyone/thing connected with Outreachy, don't use GNOME at all.

              Those that actually want Linux to be considered as a viable desktop OS (rather than just paying lip service to the idea) need to understand that having Parental Controls is going to be a "must have" feature for certain potential consumers.

                Maybe I should do that... Hey! What's this beautiful plasma desktop doing on my screen?

                  Only 120 pages? They'll need to break some more extensions so they can get some more extensions.

                    ... will be sadly disappointed to find out that Linux is a kernel, not an OS...
