There have been numerous reports of filtering and sorting issues on download.com in recent months and, while some are corrected, the fixes invariably lead to new issues.

this has been going on for (months? years?) and I finally bother to create a user and post about this, it amazes me how come nobody else complained, unless the search feature of the forums is broken as well...
