Three of the top four returns for me were this msg board.

Since I don't understand the internet, I am going to make up the reason "we" are all seeing this:

Google customizes the results it shows you based on your web viewing history (which it tracks using "beacons" or persistent cookies). So, the LM Board connection can be explained due to the fact all the people that have participated in D's survey have regularly clicked on this site. I would guess that if he surveyed people who seldom/never read this message board (are there really any people like that?), he would find that Google optimized their results differently.

No science behind this at all, it is a wild-assed guess.
