It is Back To School Time and MSN has run out of time to fix their search engine.

I am not sure I follow you are saying. I don't think MSN had any deadlines to create the "perfect" search engine before little Jonny went back to school.

The improvements have been vast just since the beginning of summer.

Not in the education space.

does that mean..."my site doesn't show up where I want"?

or...is there some aspect of the results that you feel could be improved upon?

There is some aspect of the results that could be improved upon.

Without that improvement, the use of the results in an educational environment is not a proper waste of taxpayer money.

solution ..... use taxpayer $$$$ to fund the "perfect search engine" for the educational environment

Search engines don't cost anyone money. A real "student" would go to dogpile.com or some clustering engine that combines and sorts multiple sources if they're truely looking for something.

Perhaps poor teaching in making students believe one search engine is better than the other.

quite a few people pay search engines...

so you basicly believe that all search engines are the same?

A real "student" would go to dogpile.com or some clustering engine

Are you not saying that in your opinion that dogpile is superior....then you're saying one search engine is better than another...

you can't have it both ways...

They don't pay to search, they pay to market on search engines. If your talking about data search engines such as LexusNexus then that is different and doesn't even compare to MSN or Google.

Exactly the opposite. I'm saying they're all different and your better off using the combination of all than the results of one.


Are you not saying that in your opinion that dogpile is superior....then you're saying one search engine is better than another...

You must be a political major as you spun everything i said into something it isn't. Dogpile is a Meta search engine, compiling results of many other search engines. Dogpile is a recommendation of a meta search i would recommend for educational reasons that a) doesn't cost a dime b) isn't culturally, politically or fiscally tied to any one persuasion.


you can't have it both ways...

not following you here. Post A generalized MSN is costing education and tax payers money. I stated it isn't (and doesn't) and that if you want to get real technical about the usefullness of search engines you really should use all or a comparison of all to combine your data as your teacher would fail you if you just cited one source for your papers as you should be failed if you trust one search engine for your internet research.

None of this makes any sense to me.

If we are not talking about "education space" then what is it about? The title must be very misleading.

Aside from the truism that "there is some aspect of the results that could be improved upon," does anyone have any idea what katheesue is going on about?

Who asked kids to use the internet anyway? LOL

I'm guessing that some adult sites are coming up for not so adult terms?

Oh well...

Well, from the title, I thought maybe she was advocating that schools and teachers ban the use of MSN search on school computers because "MSN has run out of time to fix their search engine (before school started)". But when I questioned the reasoning, she responded with "Not in the education space", which completely confused the issue and seemingly contradicted the title. So, I don't know.

Spine: Microsoft's customer base includes a lot of families with children, so we take our responsibility to have a strong adult-content filter very seriously. There are plenty of other things that people complain about (and we're working on them), but if something serious is wrong with the porn filter, this is the first we've heard of it.

Nonsense.

Re-read some of your sticky mail from me.

The phone sex item, as an example.

Still ranking really well on msn and #1 on Yahoo.

That site appears to be completely gone from msn now. That is excellent.

Two down, one to go.

I guess I need to go find the Yahoo board and see why they think it should be #1 for that education related search term when its only real purpose is to promote a porn site.
