WHOA!  Hold it right there.  Are you sure you're a Gentoo user?

I stopped using Gentoo a few years ago because I had been using it for
a bout a year, and I'm pretty sure if you don't start dissing every
other distro and anybody who uses anything but Gentoo, they kick you
out.  JK, but your assessment sounds rational and fair.  Maybe you're
new to Gentoo ;-).
