Ho, ho! You are so unsure of your own position?

As did we all, I'm sure. But what he wrote wasn't a fair comparison.

Well, he said "I think John was trying to describe Framemaker and how
it differs from Writer". (It happens that this was wrong anyway: the
original claim contrasted Writer and Framemaker on the one hand
against "page layout applications" on the other.) The original
message put Writer in one group, in which "a document consists of a
continuous stream of text. If you insert additional text at the
beginning, all the text moves down, including the creation of new
pages at the end if necessary." No mention of frames. Then there
was the other group of page layout software, in which "each page is a
container. Everything that goes on a page goes into a graphics or a
text frame." Everything is frames.
The impression was clearly given that Writer didn't do frames. The
original poster has assured us he knows that Writer can handle
frames, so what is left to discuss, please? My concern was not you -
I'm confident you know the facts already! - or him, but the thousands
of other list subscribers out there who could have been persuaded to
believe that Writer wouldn't do linked frames. That would be a pity.
