Nah, don't feel bad about complaining. It's a pretty legitimate gripe on a pretty important tool.
The way it kinda works is that you submit some keywords and we look in our cache to see if they're already there. If not, they go into a queue to be sent to all the relevant sites for visitor data. If you search for something that isn't in our cache, then you might get pretty lame response because we have to wait to get that data back from the sources.
Hmm, I think I could have worded that better. Hopefully you get the idea.
So like I said, until we've had people using TT for a while our cache is going to be on the flimsy side, which is exactly your experience.
That said, I'm also not getting very many suggestions for your keyword, so something funky is going on there. I'll pass it on to Head of Funky Happenings and get him to check it out.
Cheers for the feedback, and don't worry... I do waaaaaay more complaining on a daily basis than you'll ever do ;)
