Written oh so, 16 years ago. New features get those niggly things (look 
at allfeatures@openoffice.org if you want)

Andrew Brown has actually contributed to the OOo project.

This thread came from the guardian, but the comments "quoted" involved 
f2f meets.

If OOo crashes, there's a crash reporter. If you visit the website, 
there's a bug reporter. If you got it from a Linux distro, they 
automatically turn to local Bugzilla's. If you buy SLES or RHEL, you 
call support (and they lodge a report if required). If you run FreeBSD, 
you turn to the community-run IssueZilla, or users@openoffice.org [1]

Have a good day.

[1] - there may be commercial FreeBSD based support organisations; if 
they exist, http://bizdev.openoffice.org/ might have some useful resources
