To Daniel,

Regarding, your "personal attack". I inferred a personal attack when you
claimed that the Arch developers were also SystemD developers and were
well respected. It seemed to me like you were peer pressuring the fellow
into withdrawing the issue by belittling his credentials in comparison
to a community and powerful developers. This looked like a David vs.
Goliath situation to me; we shouldn't ever be forcing Archers with
questions in this situation. The opinion of a user should be just as
valuable as the opinion of a developer.

There are right ways to handle things and wrong ways. The Archer  had a
technical issue and an opinion. Solving the technical issue is more
important. We can usually just ignore the opinion. This may seem
hypocritical that I'm typing this (since this doesn't solve the issue
for the Archer), so it'll be the last response I make regarding a
person's opinionated response (at least on this thread).

With that in mind, I hope the issue's solved for the Archer.
