Why Microsoft needs a kick in the arse: sheer help file stupidity

Guest

Do you want to know what stupid is? Let me tell you. Stupid is when one is
looking in the Outlook 2003 options, and discovers, under the "Tools,
Options", "Other" tab, a button labelled "Enable the person names smart tag".
Curious as to what the might be, one might think to look in the help to find
out.

Guess what the Microsoft Moron who wrote the help file deigns to tell you?
That this button (and I quote):

"Enable the Person Names Smart Tag— Specify that the Person Names Smart tag
is turned on."

Jebus H. Christie, could that be any more USELESS? The check box for the
person names smart tag turns on the person names smart tag. Like DUH I know
that but how about explaining what the g*d d**m person names smart tag IS?

Someone should be beaten with a stick for idiocies like this.
