Just ignore the troll. There are a few people on this list who seem to
take offense at the fact that people ask questions about Arch Linux...on
a list for asking questions about Arch Linux. It's one thing if you had

irritating, but that doesn't seem to be the case for you. So just don't
pay him any mind.
