Given the fact that you've now chosen the path of making personal
attacks (again), I have put you on moderation.
The only one who is being ignorant here, is you.
I have suggested to you what your problem with your configuration is.
I even gave you and also Fons possible ways of configuring your system
in such a way, that you don't have to use dropin files (which have been
around for along time, but that's another story).

I'm tired of reading your insults and repetitive information, about a
problem that you have because of a partial upgrade (which we don't
support - period).

This has nothing to do with your ability to maneuvre a Linux system.
This has something to do with you ignoring what people answer and
suggest and spamming every Arch list with arbitrary information (even
after you problem is solved) and wasting all of our time (and then
turning to personal attacks).

Stop using the Arch lists for accusations of this kind.
I'm perfectly aware of other people's skill sets and preferences, which
is why I gave a suggestion on how you can use your setup without the
realtime-privileges package.
I spend a considerable amount of my free time actually trying to improve
the infrastructure and (pro-audio) packaging in Arch.
What you do here is toxic and condescending and sucks out all the fun
out of doing that.

I'm not sitting "on the high horse" here. I've offered my help.
And you rant.

Btw: Fons didn't give very detailed information on what actually his
problems are yet (besides a lot of emotional context about dropin
configuration files and group usage). He's entitled to have that. I'm
entitled to ask for further information regarding his reported problems.
There's nothing more to that.
