Digg.com: your 2-letter words search sucks

Actually I have issues with Digg.com search in general. For example I always write my posts by myself. Whether they are good or bad, doesn’t matter, but they are always “original”. But when I submit something to Digg.com it is first “Digging through your submission” and then comes up with annoying message like “There are duplicates found” and gives me a list of posts with similar subject. When I submitted my post about Adobe HQ building, it showed me a long list of all Adobe-related posts found. Digg.com calls them “duplicates”. What a heck? Did you mean “related posts”? Do you see the difference between “duplicates” and “related” subjects? Then I have to click that stupid button “Totally original. I swear!”. Kinda “software implementation fail” workaround with some sort of humor.
Did You guys fail to design good search engine for yourselves? Or your “software back-end guy” quit in a middle of the project and left tons of unreadable code behind so no one could support it?

But back to the subject (“your 2-letter words search sucks”). Today I was searching Digg.com for the keyword “3D”. Please check out the results: “Your search string has disallowed characters in it, or is too short“:

Huh? How about group “U2”? Same result! WTF?
May be it is time for Digg.com to teach this “made in Asia” piece of software to start searching for common “2-letter-words”? Please do not tell me that I have to be more specific with search criteria, for example I have to type in “3D Display” or “3D Models”, or just go to Google. Well. Please, do not think for me, I would like to do the search and then decide what I want to read or not.

So I am waiting for the button @ Digg.com “That’s what I am f**king searching for! I swear!
