Ran across this today:

It includes the quote "I know LO often acts like an annoying hysterical wife
-- lacking every logic and reacting is every way except the expected way.
But it seems like you seriously think LO is reacting on your input, or that
you have a computer hardware failure setting the bits just so as to cause
this behaviour."

Another interesting quote: "Since you are running Mint 17.1 I assume LO is
fairly up-to-date, meaning in a very unstable development state. I found
that LO is bug ridden, and especially contains lot of regression errors in
the most simple things."

That last bit, although hitting close to home, seems awfully dismissive when
appearing on a non-Libre forum, and certainly doesn't help TDF promotion
efforts - should someone knowledgeable about the particular problem the
posting author describes take a look? I personally haven't experienced the
issues he (or she?) describes, so don't feel qualified to act as a diplomat

Ideally people could engage in a discussion with the original poster(s)
but as it is a non LibreOffice forum, I guess everyone is entitled to
his or her own opinion, no matter how dismissive it its. I would say it
is not primarily up to TDF to answer, but of course understanding this
person's issue and help him out, perhaps by having him file a bug report
may be useful. 

On a personal note, I'm more upset by his comment on the "annoying wife"
than on his criticizing of LibreOffice. I'm a married man but I feel
somewhat offended by the comparison.
