Beside from the above,
Depends on how long it takes that some people come back to a sane way in 
treating each other persons.
People just speaking about principels, 
don't know why things might be good and just talk about plain not patched 
vanilla stuff, without even thinking what the result would be.
I never saw someone, hey your kernel blowed my machine away, because you added 
patch xyz.
Good Hardware support seems not to be needed, because all needs to be done 
upstream and/or praised by the arch overlords, that don't do anything to make 
the kernel better, just ranting about why you do that etc.
I remember the discussion about adding squashfs and the other filesystems,
i rejected to add it first i was flamed for it, because you needed them to do 
your holy development work.
Now im flamed for every little patch, which helps some people to get their 
hardware work properly.
Luckily my hardware is supported by the normal kernel modules, you will hit 
others with not supporting their hardware, which would be quite easy to 
achive sometimes and doesn't hurt users that don't have the hardware. 
You will lose user friendlyness, but you don't care about them anyway, and if 
your system doesn't work you can fix it yourself, this is your non diplomatic 
interpretation of the so called ARCH WAY.
I can spend my free time on better tasks, instead of listening to your rants 
and mostly unproductive criticism all the time, do it better or let the 
people that know how to handle this important part of a distro do their work.

About your treatment with the ISOs I don't want to say much, 
slapping someone in the face is nice, thanks for this.

</rant off>

Have fun,
(you should really link the Frustration thread from dev ml to normal general 
mailinglist to keep some fun for the users ;) too )
I hope things change to a better place, with respect to each other.
love, peace and penguins
