“Bing” And Be Grossed-out

I was doing some research for work today.  Google hadn’t yielded any reasonable results for the for which I was searching.  I was looking for z4DpvGetCodeSTD.  z4DpvGetCodeSTD is a function in a USPS API.

Bing’s attempt to help me “decide” is appreciated.  But I’m not looking for an STD.  Sure, sexually transmitted diseases are an important issue.  Just don’t pull the “STD” letters out of context and assume that’s what I was looking for when the original term couldn’t be found.  Adding the “STD” suffix to function names is common when importing certain kinds of APIs into an application.
