The mystery of top hit kifastsystemcallret

I was always suspicious why kifastsystemcallretis the most searched keyword and now I think there are automated web scanning engines doing data mining for stack traces to keep their databases for crash dump analysis and other stats up-to-date. This is how I would design my own internet bot to find such stack traces. Originally I thought that people are looking for it and wrote this article:

What is KiFastSystemCallRet?

I might be wrong here and this function is searched by humans indeed because it is on top of stack traces and novice users of WinDbg or other debugging tools check its purpose.
