Phonetic search results for Suwalki using JewishGen Poland Collection #poland

A "Phonetically like" search on Surname can get odd results for Suwalki records.  For example, searching "Silberman"  I find a low percentage of odd given names that include : Sorry, Well then, The circus, Councilman, and Yes,David.    There are also a few dodgy surname results  such as WINDOW, IDENT  and GLASSES. These do not show up when using "Sounds like" and "Silberman", or "is Exactly" and the correct surname (Zylberman, Zilberman, or Sylberman).

I cannot seem to find similar results for other gubernia. 

Has anyone else had similar results?   

I wrote to "webmaster@..." in March and April, but these results persist.
