<<Nikon really needs to clean up the wording of that sentence is all of its manuals.>>

Too true. They also need to help folks understand when and when not to use VR and I don't mean just when on a tripod or monopod! I struggled for years with fast shutter speeds giving poor IQ until I read Thom Hogans article and had help here about when and when not to use VR.
You may already be aware of this, but if not and put simply, if the equivilent shutter speed is x1.5 the focal length, turn VR off e.g. focal length 200mm, shutter speed 1/350 or more. It's so easy to forget that sometimes I don't need it and leave it switched on, after all VR is a low light slow shutter speed tool.
