Are you clear what the difference is between different opinions and the determination that
someone says something untrue?

My opinion is my opinion and not the untruth, because my opinion is not a representation of
facts, but only describes what I want or prefer.

OK, I'll remember.

Exactly so _I_ see this synonymous and therefore I want the OpenOffice _within_ the ASF Apache
is further developed. Others see it differently and I have to accept it.

yes, clear ... but:

_Absolutely no interest on my part._

I want help to improve the original (=OpenOffice) and not a software only based on OO. Otherwise,
I could also work for LibreOffice.
