Hello everyone,

So... thank you all for your comments, and your support. It is welcome
and heartwarming. But at the risk of repeating myself, let's not waste
our time on this. Somebody quacked against us for a number of reasons,
and we don't plan nor do we have the ability to change his  mind. We (we
as a group and as individuals) have much better things to do, one of
them working our our community and marketing for LibreOffice. 

That's why I'd like to ask everyone to spend any more efforts or
comments on this chapter. Just let the duck in its pond. :-)

Hi :)
except that i suspect he does understand but it destroys his argument rather than reinforcing it 
so he ignores it.

Positive trends are more important than precise numbers of users.

The problem here is that everyone, including journalists, is aware that our figures are intended 
to provide a trend, while [the chap] does not understand this basic concept. He would like to 
see journalists bashing TDF, as he has been doing on a regular basis since June 2011. This, of 
course, will never happen, for two reasons: journalists might criticize but do not bash, and the 
positive trends around TDF and LibreOffice are so clear that writing something different would 
be impossible (unless you have a specific agenda against TDF, LibreOffice, free software and 
open standards).
