Don't the rules say you're only supposed to mod down offensive posts and spam. I don't see how the post is either of those.

Look closer. I see another option called off topic. And since the mentioned feature (about adding A/V) does exist, it makes the post somewhat off topic.

As for your post, there are way to many fanboys around here yelling fanboy every 5 seconds.

I don't think you're right. This is not offtopic, how did you assume it is? You seem to just try to excuse yourself, nothing else. Besides, there could be more people thinking there is no support for videos and they would see there actually is if they install java.

The rules for modding down also say that if something is factually wrong then you should reply and correct it rather than modding it down.

You're definition of what is off-topic is really a stretch.

I started the thread "Impress AV support". I never said support for A/V did not exist in OOo, but I did say it was "poor", and that my boss rejected OOo partially for that reason. I personally use OOo, and do not own MS Office. But at work, OOo (at least Impress) is unfortunately ruled out. Although the capacity to do A/V does exist in OOo, I feel it is a poor implementation that lacks features that MS Office already has. And it has not been improved in version 2.1 of OOo.
