Waow. Thank you for making my private mail and question public,
especially when I had mentioned the mail to be private.
The reason I asked -and I asked this in private- was precisely not to
sound arrogant, trying to belittle you or anything of that sort.
From what I understand, you did not know the answer to the question you
asked. It is perfectly normal not to know, and perfectly normal to
ask. However, given the actual nature of your question, and the fact
that you have been around the project for quite some time (and a
moderator of the user list?) I would have expected you to know the
answer and then I thought that you were trying to have Sophie point at
the right URL. I was not sure. So I asked in private, knowing asking
such a question in public would not be taken the right way.
I apologize for having dared to ask a question in private and if that
question was taken the wrong way. It really wasn't meant to be.

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

battle; HOW can any user of this product learn, if we're attacked for
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

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

The LO users mailing list is the only one I've ever encountered
people are MUCH more interested in debating "Office politics" and

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

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 :)
Good to know that there is also a discussion list. Thanks Sophie.
