Interesting search engine "LemmeFind"

I Recently stumbled across a new search engine aggregator in the Dogpile vein.

This one's called LemmeFind. It has a number of localised searches by country code and the New Zealand version gives some great results from NZ websites.

As a comparison, here's the same search for the 1plus header text from Dogpile & LemmeFind (NZ)

My only gripe is that there is a bug where if you use quotes on the search string, the page 2,3,4 links omit the search term. I tried to alert them but their feedback form is "disabled because of abuse" and their whois information lacks useful email addresses.

Hi Bruce, thanks for your post and positive observations about LemmeFind. A bigger thank you for reporting the bug.

I'm a bit surprised how this bug has escaped our internal testing thus far and I'll have it investigated and fixed immediately.

We try to ensure that a correct, reachable e-mail address is provided across Whois records of all our domains, so your observation on this comes as a surprise too. I'm having this matter investigated right away also and any necessary updation made to our Whois asap.
