How do these people even know how many copies were downloaded? Outside of the USA most people pull their free software from mirror sites, and the vast proportion of those are antagonistic to reporting per-product statistics.

Had you RTFA, you would have seen Weir's data on said mirror sites (SourceForge provides AOO's mirror service, and rather than being "antagonistic to reporting per-product statistics" it is downright open about them, providing a query API).

Other sites (many of the well-known mirror sites) also mirror AOO & LibO, often without providing (public) statistics. It's simply impossible to get a correct number of downloads/installs that way.
