ChaCha: New Search Engine That’s Ripe for Abuse

    ChaCha is a new search engine that provides users with the option of a “search guide,” a live person to chat you through your search. An awful idea? Yes. An awful idea with serious fun-generating implications? Yes again. And so, straight from the Prefix Forums, here is some good-natured abuse. First up, can ChaCha help us dig up info on Deerhunter?
