So, with my poz glasses firmly on my nose, ten fingers on the keyboard, one eye on Cuil.com and another on Poz.com personals, I queried the terms [hiv aids]:
Now, I was not expecting this answer:
We didn't find any results for hiv aids which for a split second made me think, hey wow, that new search engine is brilliant, it can even read me back my latest blood test results and has found me to be undetectable. The split second over (it feels longer, doesn't it?) I realised that the words hiv and aids together probably weren't meaningful enough to Cuil. Aaaahhhh. Only a few million search results for Google, probably, and only a few dozens, presumably, people with hiv aids around the world.
I'll give it to them, searching for hiv alone was much more rewarding. What with the suggested categories on the right hand side (note AIDS dissidents in the list!):
- Antiretroviral Drugs
- AIDS Dissidents
- HIV/AIDS Researchers
- Sexually Transmitted Diseases
- HIV-positive People
What do you think of that new search engine and its apparent inability to cope with a diagnostic of hiv aids??
