[ubuntu] Don't Want Libreoffice. Don't Want Abiword. So Why Force Me?

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, I don't want either LibreOffice or Abiword on one of my Ubuntu (12.04) boxes. When I try to uninstall LibreOffice then apt-get automatically installs Abiword. Of course, Synaptic and Aptitude do the same, while dpkg simply refuses to remove several core LibreOffice packages because of certain ridiculous dependencies based off Gnome. This just doesn't seem right. I should be able to choose which, if any, office suite I want to use. So if anyone can please help - how do I get rid of LibreOffice without getting stuck with Abiword?
