---- Ask.com still indexing pages 301ed three years ago

I've been using Ask for the past week and have found zero dead pages. The only problem I have found is an old page from my own site that shouldn't be listed but 301's OK to the page that should be listed. So no major problems from one week of heavier than average use. I would venture that the average user would never encounter any problems at all.
It's fairly consistent in this forum that the fiercest defenders of ASK have a financial interest in it
My financial interest in Ask is all of 5 hours old and is minor. I have invested in Ask on the back of using it for a week and the new interface. Rather than this being used against me you should see it as a demonstration of the strength of my convictions. I am not really into boosting any search engine, but I do think an awful lot about the future of search.
They've lost a large percentage of their marketshare in just four months. How come?
This is completely irrelevant since I am talking about the new interface launched last week. Watch the next four months and see what happens.
In the end Iím not looking for a fight and I appreciate that this is primarily a technical forum. Iím just explaining how I see it and perhaps bringing a slightly different perspective to the debate. Apologies if I offended anyone!
