Hi :)

Most people and especially those that are new to the lists will
top-post because that is what they are most familiar with.  Office
workers have almost never seen any alternative.  Unless the office apps
are not aimed at office users then it's ridiculous to expect anything else.
Is it good to start off by telling people off for not doing things your way when we are supposed to 
be offering them choices?  Should we alienate people and make them feel that to use LibreOffice 
they have to completely change their entire lifestyle?  Is our main aim here to change the way 
people post or is it to help people move to LibreOffice?

Regards from
Tom :)

Your persistent top posting in reply to an inline posted thread shows a constant disregard for convention. Your failure to correct your lack of quote levels for the message replied to is reprehensible. You show utter disregard for common netiquette.

If this message alienates you, Good. Your self-centred attitude alienates many.

Disagree... I have had much better MSO format support in the later
versions of Libreoffice than Openoffice ever provided...
I think Impress and Base need a bit of work but Writer and Calc are
quite fantastic for this sort of thing. Well, for the most part imo.
Please stay in context Tom - and PLEASE stop top-posting in an inline posted thread (I expect this 
admonition to fall on deaf ears because you have already demonstrated your blatant disregard for 
respecting the List Posting Guidelines, and refuse to acknowledge the difference between *blindly* 
*bottom* posting and intelligently in-line posting).

The complaint wasn't about general file format support, it was comparing OOo (prior to LibO 
splitting off) to subsequent version of LibO.

I maintain my comment that *all* version of LibO have been at least as good, but mostly much 
*better* than prior version of OOo...
