I think it's a bug, I am not trying to steal your time.
When I surf to Slashdot, I see lots of articles.
In my personal preferences I have everything unticked,
so I want all stories.
But when I hit search I see more articles, in particular
about games (I like those too please!).
They do not appear when you surf to slahdot.org but do
appear when you hit search.
I presume its a bug but maybe you call it a feature
Thanks for your time,
