It's really disillusioned, if the only response from an open source project on a bug report after nearly seven years is such a mass pinging.
It seemed nobody has really touched this bug report during the last seven years. This is particularly sad because the project pays staff for the work on bug reports and this bug had been introduced by one of this persons.

Recommendation to the project: drop the writer wizard for letter, because it is useless in the current state (since seven years now) and nobody seemed to be keen to work on fixing this wizard.
