arrogant my foot. If somebody smokes in my face it is not arrogant to
tell him/her to stop. It is my right, period.

yes it is your right, but to not be smoked on your face is seen as
your right by others (even if "other" is your boss), but to send a
document in another format (mainly if the receiver is your boss or
customer) isn't seen as your right

But still is (not to mention that it's in their OWN interest to not
lock all their documents, not just those they exchange with others, in
proprietary formats). Just as it was already my right to not be smoked
in my face 20/15 years ago, when smoking inside crowded workplaces was

Besides, I had already explicitly acknowledged myself the need to

Then of course, keep tolerating and using a proprietary format may
be still practically _unavoidable_ in many cases, no question
about it. I am in several of those cases myself.

So I honestly fail to see what was the point of your message.
