No, isn't a bad link. Your network administrator that is blocking you from access download.openoffice.org.
Did you notice the "Access Denied" message?

or it could be that the site has taken a hammering and they have quickly altered the front page to minimise the impact on the web site.
I do not have a network. I am directly connected to the internet from one machine and I did not set it up to block anything. Unless Comcast hates OpenOffice.org, and came up with a detailed message about it and is faking its identity as the hosting provider of OpenOffice.org, then it is OpenOffice.org host that is down.
