Oh Dear God, LinkedIn to be inexorably linked to Microsoft Word

Clippy Redux per the source
Mr. Nadella supplied one explanatory clue in an email that he sent to Microsoft employees. “This combination will make it possible for new experiences,” he wrote, such as “Office suggesting an expert to connect with via LinkedIn to help with a task you’re trying to complete.” He went on to predict that such experiences would “get more intelligent and delightful.”
No, you idiot - it won't be delightful.  It will be annoying and hate-inducing.  This will cause a vast exodus from LinkedIn, which may be overdue given how bloated and unwieldy it has become, as well as forcing people who just want to fill out their TPS reports or write their term papers in peace to Google Docs.
