Over the weekend I had to deploy the search engine to find out why on earth Judge Mathis, who is usually pretty easy-going, threw a particular witness out of the TV courtroom even though he hadn't done anything to offend. As soon as I started typing, it became obvious that either several million other people wondered the same thing, or the guy actually is famous. But even though I grabbed the first suggestion, the search results didn't fit. They were just random pages containing the various words in the search. The optimal results were buried further down.
Later on it occurred to me that I hadn't changed my filters from their default "moderate". (In the circumstances, this was probably just as well.)
Speculative question: Is it possible that autosuggest works on a pool of all searches, independent of filtering, so it may not even be relevant to your own individual search?
I realize this is somewhat o/t, but I really really do not want to start a thread with this question. Maybe if the search had been something innocuous involving the Muppets...
