Well, I'm glad you finally got my name right. I rest my case about displaced aggression. I am a Slack user *points to distros field* and specifically said I've yet to try either Gentoo or Arch. I never made any "review" at all. That was my first post on this thread. The individual you were arguing with was Config who is a Gentoo user and, as far as I could tell, admitted a couple of limitations in Gentoo, praised many aspects of Arch, and said Gentoo was still the distro for him. This was the vicious pro-Gentoo attack that got you so incensed.

I hope you do come back, but hope you do so more calmly. The Slack forum is full of references to other distros - the focus is Slack. This forum will be full of references to other distros. The focus will be on Arch. It's not at all surprising that, with almost 50K members, few of whom use Arch, there are going to be questions about it and comparisons to Gentoo or Slack or whatever people are already familiar with. After getting a fix on what Arch is all about by comparison with other distros, Arch will become more familiar and conversation will become progressively more Arch-centric among greater and greater numbers of Arch users. As long as some Arch users don't run off prospective newcomers to Arch and then leave, themselves.
