       ... this is an example of the inanity;
              rather than responding, as 1 thoughtful soul did do, this
person decides to ridicule me.

       Why shouldn't I have the right to know?; actually, why shouldn't the
list have the right to know?

       BTW - IF this narcissistic attitude on the part of some on this list
does not end, then the marketing of LO is fighting a losing battle;
             HOW can any user of this product learn, if we're attacked for
asking questions?

       Sure some questions might seem overly simple to those who know, but
to one who does not know, the answer, explained in a simplified manner,
might be just what's needed in order to continue using these machines.

       And, remember, that you 'experts' on these machines were not always
that way - you too had to ask questions and receive simplified answers.

Hello Anne,

This is a private mail.
Are you asking this question because you do not know the answer to it or
because you would like to ensure everybody has the right information?

Thank you,

 The LO users mailing list is the only one I've ever encountered where
 people are MUCH more interested in debating "Office politics" and
 Administrivia than actual product features, bugs, workarounds etc.

 For the average user, the spectacle offered by this list can be pretty
 off-putting. Just saying...

 br /> I
agree with you, several of the discussions happening here should
 happen on the discuss@ list and I understand that it could be really
 annoying for some users who only come here to ask or answer questions
 about the use of LibreOffice. It's the only users@ list in the project
 that I know doing so.
 So all could you please stay on the topic of the list and post
 discussions on the relevant discuss@ list. Thanks :)

 Kind regards

Good to know that there is also a discussion list. Thanks Sophie.
For real technical questions and answers there is also AskLibO forum.
