I actually *understand* why a page like this gets created at Microsoft

Somehow I ended up subscribed to Microsoft’s Small Business newsletter. I think, but am not sure, it is because I signed up for something. Deciding to unsubscribe, I found a link at the bottom of the email (nice!) which led to this monstrosity of a page:

Holy shit, do they think anyone CARES? I want to unsubscribe! Not read a treatise some deluded PM wrote because he was feeling especially self-important one day.

Oh, and by the way, the instructions suggest that I find links that do not EXIST.

That was going to be the end of the post until I got THIS beautiful page:

I have no idea what I’m supposed to do. It says to check the box to unsubscribe, but at the same time, the column header is “Subscribe” – not Unsubscribe. But I already am subscribed? If there is a checkbox why are there also two different buttons, and what happens if I hit Update instead of Unsubscribe but check the Un(subscribe) checkbox?

We live in a world of uncertainty.

Oh and the best part is – what is up with the newsletter description? “Is created to be sent out as regular monthly or bi-monthly NL”? That’s so screwed up even Yoda wouldn’t say it.

I think I have unsubscribed, but I don’t have the fucking computer expertise to determine this from their poor-ass website.
