Is their crappy search programming meant to make you want to pay for an actual dictionary?

The list of words Merriam-Webster gives you as potential alternatives if you search for "hairline fracture":

1. ethnocentricity
2. ethnocentrisms
3. wienerwursts
4. harmonicists
5. half-worlds
6. hornlessnesses
7. ethnocentrism
8. homeomorphisms
9. homomorphisms
10. harmlessnesses

"Hairline" is, of course, nowhere to be seen.
