Holy Crap - MSN Results - 9 out of 10 Spam!

Did a search on a non-common term - all black hat results

I did a search for "<snip>" on MSN - a common term in my industry (rehab)

9 out of the 10 results:

- Were totally cloaked
- Were only vaguely related to the search query
- Appeared to be managed by the same group based on the file name format, google "nocache" metatags and other "finger prints" on their pages.

How can you have a trillion dollars and produce results this bad? No wonder Google continues to gain market share over MSN - I would never find what I'm looking for!

MSNDude - you guys need to address this soon - I'd be embarrassed if any of my businesses had this many errors in it's output.

The thread above is now closed, but it covers this spam/subdomain-spam issue. We feel your pain.

I did not get a chance to comment again in that thread.. I agree with Crobb on the sandbox. I am all for it. MSN Needs some type of sandbox and some type of subdomain filter. how can this be so hard for bill gates to figure out haha..
