Or perhaps it is the poster's most frequently used application with the
LO suite and so where it was noticed? Dare I suggest you are over
reacting there?

Double-clicking on the document assumes that it is readily visible --
perhaps on a sloppy, crowded desktop? -- otherwise there are additional
steps. Opening LO certainly works as well as opening from within LO
Writer and is a bad recommendation. However, as I think about
alternating between creating and editing documents in Writer (my most
heavily used component of LO), going directly to Writer seems the most
natural way or working (at least for me). Furthermore, if you think
that this should be the MO for using LO, perhaps there should be no
links to open LO components directly from menus.

That may be, but it seems that the poster I have other ways of working
that make sense to us. Furthermore, why would I open a blank document
first if I were going to be working with both an existing and blank
document simultaneously? Opening the existing document first seems more
logical to me. However, all of that is beside the point because we are
talking about a change in what has been the default behavior and, if my
test in safe mode is any measure, is still the default behavior.
