Hi Sam,

I regretfully have to inform you that I had to remove the link to the
LibreOfficeForum.org site at the request of Drew Jensen seconded by
Charles Schulz. Sorry about that. Personally, I have no issues with
your site.

I think Drew is willing to debate the matter. Maybe a solution could
be found? Would removing the advertising be a possibility?

Anyway, just to keep you informed...

I don't know whether I've missed something coming to this thread late, but is there an 
explanation of why they requested that the link be removed?

Hi James,

That would best come from me perhaps.

The reason is actually rather simple - during this discussion it was
apparent that a number of people where strongly opposed to linking
directly to that forum. I do not think anyone would say that any type of
agreement let alone consensus had been reached.

while this was going one of the people with edit rights to the main web
pages added links to the site, without I believe realizing that this was
being discussed still.

My asking that person to remove the link should be construed as meaning
that the action was not appropriate at this time.

Beyond that I would like to make a few comments more directly to a few
points raised, but they would be best added to the emails in which they
were raised and I will do so as time permits during the day.

I hope that answers your question on the specific point.


Best wishes,

Drew Jensen
