Keyword Types at Microsoft adCenter Handled Wrong?

This is shocking, if true. A Search Engine Watch Forum thread has two accounts reporting the same issue.

I decided to use Phrase match for the whole campaign except one keyword. To my surprise, their system automatically added the Exact match types as well! Instead of a cute 40 keyword campaign, it balloned into 80-something.

One SEW member confirms this to be true;

Yes - this has been a big problem for me too.

He says this not only costs him money but also puts him at legal risk for trademark and copyright PPC claims.
