Yahoo Link Domain Command Funky

I am sure many of you have seen this in the past, I have but I have never really seen a thread on the weirdness of Yahoo!'s linkdomain command. So I decided to start one over at Search Engine Watch Forums. What is the issue?

Besides for the fact the Yahoo! API returns completely different results for the linkdomain:www.domain.com command as compared to when you use the same command at search.yahoo.com...

Doing the search at search.yahoo.com returns different results as well. For example, I did this search within a few minutes of each other, same exact search.

Now that isn't too bad, but when I do the search when logged into Yahoo! MyWeb, I get a huge spike in numbers.

I posted the forum thread at Search Engine Watch Forums.
