It absolutely, positively is too much to ask. You cannot come to "our"
forums and pollute it with noise that actively detracts from the
usefulness of the forums.

The problem with you, is that you seem to erroneously believe that that
means Arch Linux disapproves of those people getting help at all. Arch
Linux is very supportive of those people getting help *from the
locations best equipped to provide them with help*. Which isn't here.

And it is unconscionably rude to pollute the Arch Linux support
resources with counterproductive noise, therefore people who do so
anyway *deserve* our disdain. If we so chose to be disdainful, which
most Archers actually don't...
