@ztx Whoever owns the servers has the right to do whatever they want with them. Most search engines filter results by relevance, using secret unverifiable criteria, that's a given. They are not obligated to make it fair, or even tell you anything about it. The only promise DDG made to you (not even a paying customer, who nevertheless feels entitled) is that they will not track you and personalize search results. You never had any reason to trust anything that they said, because there is no transparency, no standards, no guarantees or warranties, but it helps to at least understand what they said.
