I didn't say you had to have Premier service to contact them.

There you go. You found the appropriate links.

Well, we could go round and round in circles on this. My definition of 
a bug, is something that makes an operable system inoperable. Surely, 
what we are talking about here is a simple mistake in documentation and 
Mathematica remains operable, amazingly enough.

I don't know. Maybe. Maybe not. I wouldn't dwell on it too much. I'm 
sure that it really doesn't stop you from using the software to 
accomplish what you need to.

Best regards
