So what do you reply to Roger Sawkins? That he can file a bug report hoping that some day in future LibreOffice will fully support the extinct ppt format?

Yup, with the help of the community we can improve LibreOffice so that in the future people are more happy with the PPT import/export filter. For this to happen we need good information and simple test-cases showing the ill-behavior.

IMO that's a better response than the original:

    Your are wasting your time. Make a cost-benefit analysis and decide
    whether to use either LO or m$; do not bother trying to use both.

There's no guarantee that Roger will take the time to do this, and there is not guarantee that someone will pick up the bug reports.

But it is guaranteed that if we tell people they are wasting their time using LibreOffice in a certain way, no progress is made on that front.

Which would be a true shame.
