I am sorry that you did not understand my messages.
It is still not clear to me what "YOUR" AOO means.

And just to clarify, I'm not a representative of anything, much less
Apache. I have used OpenOffice since it was a propietary product dubbed
"StarOffice" (v3.1), that came from a small German firm dubbed StarDivision
Gmbh, before the Sun Microsystems acquisition and its later release as open
source. I then continued using both and also purchased
StarOffice, to contribute within my means to its development. I believed in
the dual-licensing and opensource+commercial version model. That's why I'm
backing Apache and AOO.

The message you reference is an email I posted to show the kind of anti-AOO
articles appearing on the press as of late (just the last 3 of them), not
because I agree with them, but because those kind of articles deeply annoy
