Really dude? you complain about him wasting time when you could find the 
time to dig up some old mail that was answered ages ago to attack the 
guy for asking questions?

I'm sure we can all agree that it's important for an Arch user to be 
more independent and put more effort into solving our own problem but 
did you know you can simply ignore any of these questions?

It doesn't take any effort since the bulk of the issue was already in 
the title.

To be honest I simply cannot take this kind of negativity. I would 
really like for this kind of attitude to stay away from Arch because 
it's not nice and it's the very thing I hate about the Linux community 
in general.
