plz do my homework for me!

If you have an informational website, and some way for people to contact you, you’re bound to get requests that can be summarized as: “Please do my homework for me!” If I reply at all, it's along the lines of “this website can help you to do your own homework!”
Now I'm preparing for a workshop (about accessibility). My Windows laptop is slowly dying, so I don't dare to use that. My MacBook is brand new, and I've never done a presentation with it. And I hate Powerpoint and prefer Open Source Software (OSS) whenever possible anyway, so I'm thinking of using OpenOffice.org Impress. OK, so I do a little research - adapters to connect the MacBook to a projector (all sorted now), collect some tutorials for Impress to get up to speed quickly (there's an incredible number of those).
And I find the superlative of the do-my-homework-for-me syndrome in the comments on one (otherwise not very useful to me) tutorial; this one doesn't look like homework — more like a business meeting:
plz send me ppt presentation for open office in which presentation on writer,clac,ectErr… “ppt”? A Powerpoint presentation on Open Office??
