I can only say that sadly I am both people in that comic. I have a Facebook page (which will go to diaspora when its ready) and I try to use .odt as much as possible. [My left hand holds the worlds tiniest open source violin, my right hand is blogging in blogger.com.]

No you aren't both of those people.

Did you ever eye roll someone for requesting an open document format?

It's okay to use both proprietary and open infrastructure and data formats.

What's not okay is to impose proprietary infrastructure and formats on others as a necessary means of collaborating with them.

That's what makes that comic a lesson in hypocrisy. The fact that someone _rejected_ a reasonable request for an open data format.
