Couple of points:

1. Arch is not a democracy. See the "Respect the Staff" entry in the
code of conduct.

2. Your comparison to slavery is completely uncalled for. Banning the
dicussion of unsupported software is no where close to a human rights
violation. Please discuss matters without ridiculous hyperbole.

3. Operating this mailing list, the forums, IRC channels, etc. costs
both time and money. Thus, the maintainers of these avenues of discourse
have every right to dictate what can or cannot be discussed on them. If
you want to help users of unsupported installers, don't do it on Arch's
