Rob, just a reminder, these type of comments are best left alone. It is

I thank you for your contributiions to AOO.

I have been using OpenOffice for quite some time without issues.. ( not 
helpfull to those with issues..I lnow)...or only one.. when Libreoffice 
became the default for Linux, not LO bashing, just AOO works better
