I hear ya. I wonder if the problem is the lack of oerr on windows?

If it's a oracle error, I do similar, except I use the wide open search second, it's better than the otn search and often has otn, cdo and oracle-l links high up anyways. As John noted, just a few words can push away the annoying sites, especially with plus signs on words or quoted phrases not in the error messages. I mentally reject some sites anyways.
I'm still a little surprised people don't use MOS first for error messages.
While trying an error message search to remember a site I mentally reject, I noticed a DMCA takedown notice on the google results page (not the first page, apparently starting about 10 result pages in), pointing at this: http://www.chillingeffects.org/notice.cgi?sID=30399 Experts-exchange suing some guy in Vietnam for copyright infringement, they submitted a DMCA to google, guy in Vietnam submitted a counter- -claim to google.
So why does Oracle not use DMCA on google? Maybe they have bigger fish to fry: http://fosspatents.blogspot.com/2011/01/new-evidence-supports-oracles-case.html
