Per https://duckduckgo.com/bang.html , this is correct operation.

We call these commands !bangs, and this syntax works for 100s of sites:

Most big sites work, e.g. !youtube (see full list below)

Most generic keywords work too, e.g. !images

There are also shorter versions, e.g. !g (google) !i (images) !yt (youtube)

!ducky or '! ' or '\' will take you to the first result.

!safeoff will run a search with safe search off. [\quote]

So you aren't going to bother sanitizing the search terms when using !ducky? This is a !band that uses DuckDuckGo, not a third party search service.

Aahh, I see the problem here... : )

A (possible) solution:
Would the problem be solved, if the "I'm feeling ducky!"-bangs would send to a given site through the r.duckduckgo.com-redirect?

From what I understand, that should fix the problem. I am not a developer but I believe links that one clicks on a typical results page are directed through that link.
