OpenOffice got taken over by oracle and is not as free as we hoped.
So top coders and contributors decided to fork off and start a fully free Office Suite.
Should we support them.
Email not sent yet.

Dear The Document Foundation,

The Bitcoin community appreciates your ongoing efforts to protect software freedom. We hope to remain free of intervention and would welcome your support.

The Bitcoin community comprises approximately 1000+ users and over 30 business enterprises employing a new open-source P2P cryptocurrency and monetary system called Bitcoins. The software for bitcoin is published under the MIT license. In addition to many other useful properties, Bitcoin has extremely low transaction fees, high divisibility, and is difficult to produce and counterfeit. These features make Bitcoin useful as a medium of exchange. As such, Bitcoin may become a threat to centralized monetary systems, which are typically backed by governments. The Bitcoin community knows that governments will defend their monetary monopolies, perhaps by suppressing the Bitcoin economy.
You can learn more at http://www.bitcoin.org/.

Members of the Bitcoin community have expressed an interest in donating [cryptocurrency] bitcoins to you as a gesture of appreciation. In order to facilitate that process, we request that you add a bitcoin donation button to the TDF website.  That would involve setting up a Bitcoin node, which is quite straightforward. We estimate that TDF would receive approximately X bitcoins currently worth about Y USD. We note that, by accepting bitcoin donations, EFF might expand its support base (perhaps substantially).

They're more concerned about making office software than protecting freedom.

Best to write a letter to the FSF instead.

Plus, I still have not sent a letter to the CCC.

I blatantly copied this from the EFF letter and I hoped someone would help me make a better one. My point is do we as a community support LibreOffice and should they have a donate bitcoin button.

Damn Oracle, I started to hate that company...

Anyway, I guess we're better off with the FSF for now.

To me it's just a bunch of posts to increase the post count before the scam offers start coming.

The latter I would guess. His posts are excessively similar.
