You have to understand too that It's annoying ot ask anything without
doing a quick search on google, it's different when you didn't found
anything (note: previous search before to ask should be the way) and
then you ask here, but if you didn't a simple research, it's like you
see us that we are here to do that research for you, don't say grow
up, they will say you the classic RTFM or SFTW, just an advice, I
personally don't like to reply e-mails that can be solved with a
little investigation :)

And Arch can have bad reputation as ubuntu/fedora/suse have bad
user-community reputation (don't search first, just ask and re-ask
questions that have been replied before) it doesn't matter the distro.

As I said, personally I don't like to reply that kind of e-mails but,
if the user it's insistent like (heyyyyy nobody didn't replied me!) I
will surely reply (If I got pissed) with a kind of reply of "SFTW" or
the link with (google:"phrase to search" + i feel lucky)
