I'm sorry to say this, but this is exactly what I was talking about in my original note.
IBM wants the Apache License, the LibreOffice people can only accept MPL/(L)GPL. Right there is enough reason for them not to join the LibreOffice project. And if I may add a personal reflection, I would also be reluctant to join a project whose members have done nothing but trash talking me.
Your comment reeks of a sense of entitlement. You try to tell IBM that you know their motivations better than they do. Your sentence "you never gave it enough thought" shows that clearly. And "Instead of helping LibreOffice, you are hurting it" is another gem. What makes you think they care about LibreOffice? There seems to be some collective idea that people are out to hurt the LO project. I have no proof in any direction but I sincerely doubt it.
What I really wonder is why you think you have the right to comment the way you do about the other project. Live and let live is a cliché, but actually a good way to lead your life. Especially since we are all part of the bigger ODF community. The hostility that is shown in this comment and other similar writings is hurting the community much more. Instead of infighting we should join our forces in the ODF world.
Finally, may I suggest that "the community" is not only comprised of the LO developers? I know several other communities and part of the former OOo community is now working on LO; part of it is working on AOO. The "we are the community and you need to work for us" sentiment needs to stop. It is arrogant and damages the real community.
