I would dare to say that these disputes and statistics are extremely boring.
Particularly, as long as numbers are still orders of magnitude lower than those of the real competitors. No offence to anyone here, but wars between the poor are not that fascinating. To draw a parallel, it can be interesting to know if Firefox is ahead of Chrome or not, but it would be not much to see rekonq and midori fighting each other on usage numbers when Firefox and Chrome are miles away (hope I am not starting another fight here).
Conversely, having worked in migration to OO.Org (well before the LibO/AOO split) I have reasons to think that this kind of rivalries can easily scare away users from both camps.
On the other hand, remaining competitors LibO and AOO could actually help both camps transmitting messages like
- competition on features can accelerate development of both
- two projects with great compatibility to each other means having no dependence on a single provider in case one days it goes away
- bug hunting can be more effective, since each project can be used as a testbench for the other
