    Well, reading through this thread, I found I got the same nonsense,
from a leader of a forked project.  For me it is always OK to fork, from
either or Apache OpenOffice.  I sincerely wish them to
grow strong, whether they are LibreOffice, OOo4Kids, BrOffice, or
anything else.  Together we enrich the whole ecosystem.  That's why I
(and many people here) help our local Taiwan LibreOffice community, too,
as much as I can.  I figured it is nonsense, and not worthy of my time.
 If I do have spare time I would rather help the local LibreOffice
community than fight with nonsense from the troll.  So I ignored it.
