Microsoft quietly shuts down Windows Live Help Community too

Microsoft has silently removed the Windows Live Help Community service and the link now redirects to Windows Live Help. This is one of the many Windows Live services being dropped in recent times. And Like Windows Live for TV, Help Community never made it out of beta.

For those of you who don't remember, Microsoft released Windows Live Help Community back in December 2006, providing another channel for users to get help for their Windows Live services. However, throughout the lifetime of the service, only three services ever utilized Help Community - that is Windows Live Admin Center, Windows Live Call for Free, and Help Community itself.

As noted back then on LiveSide, there seems to be too many help and feedback channels for Windows Live services, including:
Windows Live Account - Help Central
Windows Live Account - Feedback
Live Search QnA
Windows Live Help Community (now removed)
Windows Live Message Boards
Windows Live public newsgroups

Seems like Microsoft is finally getting their hands on to clean up the mess they've created with Windows Live and Live Search.
