That was rude.
It's only reasonable to assume that the Office team is aware of the issue. That doesn't prevent anybody from reminding them of it at every opportunity.
Convincing yourself that there's nothing you can do, and therefore not doing anything is the cop out. It's like seeing a car accident on a sparsely travelled road and saying "I don't know anything about trauma injuries, I hope someone helps those people out" as you drive on by.
I wasn't saying "don't report". Everyone knows your MO here kettch. If anything you and Microsoft condone leaving the injured in the ditch. Write the offender a ticket and ignore the injured year after year... How long is that car wreck that is HTML support in Outlook going to be ignored?
