a comment on the General Rambling Trailing bang (previously supported) makes searches vulnerable to phishising 3 years and 11 months ago
The "trailing bang" (eg imdb!) is a syntax engraved in my (and I imagine may other people's) muscle memory after a long time of extensive use and it is very hard to change. Even though it is an annoyance that ddg no longer has the behavior I expect the biggest problem it makes it really easy for phishing sites to com up very high on the search results. For example the query "imdb! constantine" yields this as the second result and the only one referring to the tv-series.

I know there have been enough flame wars over this and not to sound like a zealot but I don't think breaking trailing bang queries is a good move.

Aaah, this is a much harder habbit to change. A setting would be really awesome!
