Hi :)
Yes, it seems that way.  It's probably best to avoid clicking on that link
if you are using Windows!

I do like James' attitude but it might be better to use a "disposable"
account, or an old one that can be discarded if necessary and maybe that'd
be best done by a non-Windows user.

Ubuntu seems to already have Qur'an and Bible study programs/apps.  There
is even a Gnu&Linux distro, Sabily - Sabily is a Linux distribution based
on Ubuntu.  "It includes Islamic software (prayer times tool, Quran study
tool, Hijri calendar etc.) and has a custom design." quoted from Ubuntu
package manager.

@ James : You don't need to apologise for anything!  You haven't been at
all offensive or anything imo.  Quite the opposite, you are being a star!
:)  It is not always possible to tell what gender someone is, especially
these days and especially using text-only communications.  So shrug that
off and don't worry.

@ Brian : Good to know.  Thanks :)

For some reason that increases the probability that it's just spam, imo.  I
dunno which of my biases is at play there.  It's just a feeling.  The name
is very familiar to me but i'm fairly sure there is no real link there -
just an odd mix of paranoia and wishful thinking.

Regards from
Tom :)

Actually it is a compliment and thanks to LO and TDF for a good
product which he is able to use, blind as he is.  I would suspect that
his english is next to non-existent and that he has simply written the
message he would send to a fellow countryman, and run it through
Google translate.  And yes, he does appear to be religious, but we
have lots of Christian users, including some clerics, in here.
Admittedly they don't often go to the extremes of this man's message,
but perhaps in his country you are expected  to address an
unknown/organisation in this manner.

Perhaps if someone writes back to him to acknowledge his message, he
will not think it necessary to send the message again.  (I believe I
have seen it twice.)  I'll do that when I've finished this.

And he's offered us a present in thanks, perhaps not one that many of
us will take him up on, but nonetheless one which he thinks is a
valuable present.

I think it is equivalent to a Nigerian phishing email . . it doesn't
matter what fairy story they are promoting . .


Just my 2c

hello every one.
my name is zahra.
i used microsoft office before.
but since we can not buy the payed softwares and my religion does not
allow to violate the right of others,
and i wanted to use the computer according to my religion and with the
legal way,
i decided to use free softwares since last year.
i searched in the internet for the free softwares for one year.
my sleep was only 2 or 3 hours in the night and most of the times i
tried and tested different free softwares.
since i am blind, i should test programs first for to select free
softwares and the second accessibility for me was very important to
use this programs.
after one year efferts and search, i found my favorite programs in
different aspects. like: multemedia, screen reader, writing program,
text editor, internet browser, system information, office program etc.
i spent many times for finding an accessible, free and opensource
program replacement for microsoft office.
i found your program libreoffice the best.
for its translation to most languages, for accessibility, for its
compatibility to the microsoft documents, for its completeness and the
best point: the intimacy, kindness, support and help between the
members of your group.
for this reason i wanted to appreciate you for sincere efferts and
your great program libreoffice.
i have a gift for you for all of you one of the english translations
of the holy quran.
the message of god for all mankind, in the all universe in all times,
the message for salvation of mankind in this world and the hereafter,
the message of monotheism, mercy, compassionate, fraternity, kindness,
justice, friendship, goodness and happiness for all mankind.
the holy quran encourages his followers to appreciate kindness of
reply them better or returnthere goodness and do good with the same.
And when you are greeted with a greeting, greet with a better
[greeting] than it or return it; surely Allah takes account of all
for this reason its my duty to be grateful to you, your kindness, for
