How DOES this warrant a KB article?

In How does this warrant a KB article?, I pondered the existence of a Microsoft KnowledgeBase article that discussed how to set the SmtpMail.SmtpServer property of the System.Web.SmtpMail class.

In my travels, I encountered a blog posting in the "The CDOs and CDONTS of Messaging Development" blog - MYTH: SmtpMail.SmtpServer.Insert(0,"") Actually Does Something. This posting is interesting because it's possible that it prompted the aforementioned KB article (922777: You receive an error message when you try to send an e-mail message by using the System.Web.Mail namespace in the .NET Framework 1.0). It's also interesting because it talks about the source of the infamous code - a Code Project article.
