Voices are needed in 'discussion', as that builds community. Trivial
help requests don't.

The "if you don't like it just ignore it" viewpoint can potentially be
the first dip down the slippery slope of help vampirism and the
ubuntu-fication of a community. Ubuntu is great in what it does, but I
think Arch is for a different set of users, and would hate to see it
becoming just another A-buntu or something.
