Hmmm, I kind of think that there is a need for different forums.
LibreOffice and OpenOffice are two different projects now that will start
to diverge more and more as time goes on. I am sure there will be unique
bugs and unique features for both suites. And as for this mailing list,
most people don't like or don't understand mailing lists.

Microsoft Office can also figure out how to use an ad blocker. And for
those who don't want that, there is an option in the user configuration
page to disable both ad blocks for those who can't stand them. Sorry, but
the hard truth of the matter is that community forums for large projects
are very expensive. Even ubuntuforums.org used to run adsense because of
the sheer cost of bandwidth. Adsense is inconspicuous and occasionally
even helpful (relevant), and it helps to pay for some of the costs of a

I tried this for a long time on one forum, but allowing posts without
registration just leads to nonstop spam.
