Search for "product stream" in StackOverflow, quotes included. The "use fewer words" suggestions shows

  • "product stream"
  • "product stream"
  • "product stream"

Even though the links do link to "product", "stream", "product".

Quite confusing.

Thanks.

What is "use fewer words" suggestions? Never heard of that... quite confusing ;-) –  fretje Mar 10 '10 at 15:14
    
+1 - Replicated (though that exact search on Meta now links to this page, I got the result by searching for "product <something else>". I would tell you what, but then presumably that wouldn't work any more! (Hint: replace <something else> with foo`)). –  Dominic Rodger Mar 10 '10 at 15:35
    
Oooh, now I understand. I missed the "quotes included" part. Replicated as well. Here's a "reproducable" link: stackoverflow.com/search?q=%22product+stream%22 –  fretje Mar 10 '10 at 15:49
    
I've tried that a few times now, and it changes what the links point to, i.e. first time: stream,product,stream; second time: product,product,stream. –  Lance Roberts Mar 10 '10 at 16:23

I wanted to close this as dupe, but the dupe is set to status-completed. So you get a +1 (meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/27260/…) –  Ladybug Killer Mar 10 '10 at 19:28

All of these errors will be fixed in a build tonight - including those in @Geoffrey's answer. In the case of quoted phrases we won't suggest striking words out (since you're searching for a very exact match).

In cases where a quoted phrase is part of a larger query however, we will suggest striking out the entire phrase...if that would get you any results.

Cosmic ray... it works now. I swear to King Atwood, Joel the Apostle, and St. Skeet that I didn't fake the screenshot. –  Geoffrey Zheng Sep 24 '10 at 20:49
