I would say that the main issue is that you cannot fix the bug yourself
and that also means you cannot hire someone to fix it and it is not a
matter of how easy it is to submit a bug report. MS Office is a nonfree
software which users do not control.
Let's think of ways on how to emphasize that. The day Microsoft makes it
easy to submit a bug report, it does not make it acceptable for me to
use MS Office.
