We get these on occasion. The general theory is that they do use google but
the choice to post to the arch mailing list or forums is at best a random
selection, based on the top search results for their query.

Yes, with no indication in reply to a genuine (and fairly reasonable, if
you remember being a newbie to linux) question.

LOL ok thanks for your educational reminder. Next time I will RTFM of
n00bs before replying to something that deserves as much of a poking as
it does an answer. Honestly to me if you are using a different OS, make
no claim to using Arch and you decide to post to here to find an answer,
a poking is well deserved.

To the OP:

I had Mint Lisa installed and dropped it. I recommend to install Arch
Linux or to replace Mint by Ubuntu Studio Precise (don't care about the
"studio", the important thing is the default DE). I've got a Linux multi
boot machine, Arch Linux is amazing, but you need to do a lot yourself.
Ubuntu Studio Precise has advantages and disadvantages compared to Arch
Linux. IMO Mint isn't a good choice. Just 2 Cents, Ralf

You ... pretty much have to regardless.

A poking, or an RTFM, sure. All I'm saying is that what you posted
doesn't help the noob. RTFM helps the noob. Pointing out that this place
has nothing to do with Mint, even mockingly (even at Drepper levels of
intensity), helps the noob.

"Making a joke" that is only a joke to people who know enough not to do
the thing the noob did does not help the noob.

It's not your responsibility to help, it's also not your responsibility
to hinder. We were all dumb noobs once, and I for one don't feel good if
I plant misinformation in someones head, intentionally or not.

YMMV, of course.

+1

Not replying at all is preferable to replying sarcastically in a manner
that might be misconstrued (however naively) as serious advice.
