It sure is. This type of stuff needs public exposure to start the ball rolling in getting it fixed.
I performed multiple searches over the weekend after this topic was posted. In 65-70% of them, they were old URIs that were redirected at least a year ago. In some instances, up to two years ago.
It's a cosmetic change as MB states above. So, you get to the home page, ooh, nice simple design. You perform a search, ooh, looks like relevant results. You click a link, oops 404!
Nothing new about the Ask.com interface from a wow standpoint. And it sure looks like they are mimicking the Google layout with a little Web 2.0 thrown in.
Nah, we're tired of Google this, Google that. Its time for some of the other SEs to get some attention. In this case, it is well deserved attention. They have a major flaw in their highly publicised Algorithm.
