      Having been a software product manager in my past, I can tell you that most user 'problems' and the
      solutions for those problems go into a database. Support's job is to answer as quickly and as
      accurately as possible. If a problem is already documented, the speed with which it is answered is
      unrelated to a company's intent to help. If you don't LIKE the offered solution, ask to speak to
      someone higher up the food chain. I talked to many customers that didn't like their first
      'solution'. Just part of the job. I would not have been happy, however, if someone didn't like the
      offered solution, and then went about discussing the company in a negative way in some public group.

      In my defense, this is the first response I received:

      You can turn the feature off if it isn't compatible with your setup. To do so, open the NoteTab
      Options dialog box, go to the General tab, and uncheck the "Check Changes on Activate" setting.

      It did not say that they did not know what was happening, just to turn it off. So, in reality, it's
      not the same response either way...but thanks. :)
