Hi :)
I had one person say they "gave up on" LibreOffice when they asked about how to switch off insert 
mode and no-one here knew how to do that through the menus.  I must admit i didn't see the question 
and doubt the validity of whether they really did ask here.  Also they weren't happy with the idea 
of pressing the "insert" key on their keyboard.  Apparently MS Office has a 3 clicks solution to it 
and we (allegedly) didn't give a suitably long-winded equivalent.  

Then another person grumbled about how the UI looks so old now, compared to the shiny ribbon-bar.  
They then said they hated the ribbon-bar because they could never find anything they needed on it 
unless it was a feature they used all the time.  However they still wanted to know why LO didn't 
have a ribbon-bar and asked me how long before it would get one.  

When faced with morons such as that i think the best advice is to just leave them to it.  Get on 
with helping other people instead.  Sometimes the gentlest nudge in the right direction is enough.  
Sometimes you can see that people really are trying and are going to break-through but other times 
you just know that people are purely looking to create problems and then blame them on you.  So, 
walk on by.  
Regards from 
Tom :)

Yeah, bad troll is truly terrible.

Meanwhile you could work on a feature parity with Microsoft Word 2.0,
from 1991.

Now a productive use of time would have been to tell us what the one 
feature you would like to have which existed in Word 2.0 in 1991 and 
doesn't exist in LO.
