As it is, even after reading the other side of the story, I don't see anything wrong with it. No impartial person can deny that even if IgnorantGuru may have gone beyond reason, his main point was still valid, and not answered as it should.
P.S. I don't have any reason to think badly of ArchLinux (nor had in the past or will start now). I still think it's an interesting distro, even if I never used it and maybe never will. To me this just means there are times where perfectly fine people just have a bad moment.

For the record: I have never used Arch Linux, don't intend do, and don't know any of the involved persons.
I assume that you are as uninvolved in Arch Linux as I am, otherwise you would have surely noted that when calling for censorship of an opinionated article.
