I searched for some debate topics(eg winning ) and got preposterous search results.
Try it once and ou would know.

preposterous: http://dictionary.reference.com...

Preposterous is defined here as senseless among other things. The search results make perfect sense to me. Click into one of the debates the search returns to you and then click Ctrl+f and type in the word you initially searched for. You will find it.

You can also use google to search this site.

I am not looking for a particular word in any particular search results shown to me(as you suggested) .

If you like tryout "winning is not one of the things, its the only thing" ane for yourself. And , sir , you will get results showing "Pokemon show","Obama not a loser" and such ridiculous results.

And please do not be mortified after that.

I've just explained to you why the results aren't ridiculous. The search engine does not understand what you mean by "winning is not one of the things, its the only thing", but it does its best for you by searching for the words in the sentence. You should be grateful you have it.

I suggest that you freeze yourself in the hope that you unfreeze at a time when search engines are intelligent.

I think the search engines have become intelligent over the period of time and you should agree with that.

Anything you do not know or understand, what's your first thought---------let me guess

Oh ya ........GOOGLE IT.

And if you think GOOGLE ain't intelligent enough, no one can argue with you,sir.

Try out finding anything on GOOGLE or BING , you will get it.And, I believe you do not know how a search engine like GOOGLE works so please have a look at it also.

Thank You

My opponent's only argument for why DDO should have a better search was that the results he gets back are preposterous. I have shown that they are not. Since my opponent bears the burden of proof, I win.

You should just design a better search engine. It's not hard at all...
