Hey Doug.  Can you give a few examples of what you were searching for and what sort order you were using?  Then I'll take a look to see if I can tell what's going on.

Thanks,

I hope this helps
Many of the multi-word searches I perform with “Best Match” will retrieve this irrelevant synth.
British parliament (4th Synth)
Sacramento Kings (2nd Page)
Barack Obama (2nd Page)
Fox News Channel (2nd Synth)
Mountain Bike (5th Page)
California Coast (3rd Page)
Mesa Verda (Misspelling increases the likelihood of getting this synth --  1st Page)
But note that I still get it with the correct spelling
Mesa Verde (4th Page)
I get similar results with “Most Views.” “Best Synth” seems to be safe.  This happens on several different computers.
Placing the keyword search in quotations decreases the likelihood of getting the synth.

Doug and Nathanael,

Thanks to both of you for reporting this.  We tracked down the cause and have fixed the issue.  If you see this kind of behavior again, please let us know.
