From thread referred to:
With comments such as above it is no wonder that your roommate received the responses that were given.
Not trying to start a big argument here, but generally you will not find a more helpful forum than Manjaro's in the Linux world. The thread in question had high quality suggestions from numerous helpers including @c00ter.
I would have personally torn a strip off of any user I was attempting to help that copped an attitude of entitlement like that exhibited on the linked thread.
Generally Manjaro's forum is super friendly, but it is getting inundated by many inexperienced Linux first timers because of the demise of Windows 7. Everyone bends over backwards to help new users on this forum. However if you display a lack of motivation to search for your own answers or to learn how Linux works you will likely get blow back from helpers who get tired of users like this. If you display an attitude of entitlement on a free volunteer supported technical help forum you can justifiably expect to get static back.
You get what you give. If you come off as uncooperative, ungrateful, lazy, unwilling to do your own research, along with an attitude of entitlement you will not receive a warm welcome in almost any walk of life. Free volunteers tire of running into users such as this quite quickly. The forum is flooded with help requests, and polite, self motivated users generally get all the help they'll ever need on the Manjaro forum.
If you run into any negativity on the Manjaro forum it is usually a reflection of a poor attitude on the part of the person attempting to get help. Of course language barriers and nuances not being transferred properly to text does unfortunately lead to misunderstandings at times.
Generally though, when expecting free assistance with anything in life, the onus is on the person asking for help to be extra polite and cooperative (not the other way around IMO).
