naw, we tried to help him on IRC, most people there are very helpful.

the problem we had was that conversation with this guy was heading up 
the troll-scale so fast and so high, that it really just regressed into 

he was pointed at the .src.rpm 5 times, but his mindset of building out 
of kernel-devel instead was hard to shake off ( he carried that with him 
  into the mailing list ). I recall being pointed at a few kernel 
tarballs that had been built out of this said kernel-devel package even! 
looking into one package it turned out to be the kernel built on 
Johnny's machines.


its a no issue as far as i am concerned, this guy does not know about 
centos or how its setup, we can try and tell him - whatever info he 
takes away with him, is upto him. but if he is going to be a problem and 
troll, he is going to get the +q treatment, just as anyone else does.
