Hi, my name is Alexander and I'm still new here

->Then I think that the project has just cut an enormous number of potential
->authors out of the project.  Sorry, although I dislike Microsoft as much as
->a lot of other people, I think it's arrogance to tell the world that they're
->not allowed to use the most common word processing tool in the world to
->submit articles.

sorry if I'm meddling, but exactly this is the point of free. you can't
act free if you allow to chain the stuff by not free software.  if you
would allow to send word-documents, you would cast away every effort the
fsf did to help to maintain freedom. this way you would leave the path
of freedom in an opportunistic manner, just because M$ claims the
monopol. i don't think that i have to repeat, that m$ and/or bill gates
contain the legal rights on famous pictures and such stuff. it's not only
about software, it's just about freedom. the whole thought of the
encyclopedia is born struggling for freedom. the freedom of thoughts, the
freedom to talk and the freedom of staying human the next decades. and i
assure you there must not be any impact of non-free software, thoughts
packagingand so on, because in the end this would spoil the idea.
