a reply to a comment on the General Rambling excluding some site from the research. 6 years and 6 months ago
Yes, you just need to subtract your terms, e.g. this search. So in your case you should add "-wikipedia -facebook" at the end of your search term.
a comment on the General Rambling Collusion add-on for Firefox and DDG 6 years and 6 months ago
Mozilla has announced the new Collusion add-on for Firefox, it seemed very relevant to DDG.


Collusion is an experimental add-on for Firefox and allows you to see all the third parties that are tracking your movements across the Web. It will show, in real time, how that data creates a spider-web of interaction between companies and other trackers.
It would be interesting to show how other search engines help tracking you, and compare it with DDG.
It is all animated and very cool, I thought would make a good case and is educational too.



a reply to a comment on the General Rambling My way of promoting Duck Duck Go 6 years and 7 months ago
I have posted the stickers on my cubicle, the ugly duck head brings questions every once in a while, and people in general do not like Google obtrusive new methods (instant, glass, ...). There are also few(!) people who care about the privacy and appreciate DDG for that. I always try to tell them to get used to the bangs, for once-in-a-time results that do not show up in DDG I suggest them !g bang, !w is also very helpful.
I let people know about DDG in the blogs if I stumble upon people who are not happy with Google, or Bing
I want to use one of the stickers with my car :)
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Ubuntu lens 6 years and 7 months ago
That seems like a good idea, I much rather my lens does not turn out to be a spyglass behind my back (other search engines I meant) :)  

Side note, I do not use Unity myself
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Meaning of ?t= in URL 6 years and 7 months ago
I know of t=lm for LinuxMint, it affects the ads and might generate some revenue for referrer.

You can use https://duckduckgo.com/?q=%s  if I understood your question correctly
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling How does DuckDuckGo rank? 6 years and 7 months ago
Google also used to not *learn* the behaviour of its users, it only recently started to bubble the search results and believe it or not bubble only helps the advertisers not the end users. There is no *bigger insight* google can or should make about me, and I am capable of refining my search terms for myself and perform more searches.
