When performing a tag search, the results that are listed are non-deterministic.

See screenshots: the same query was performed on both.

http://gmatclub.com/forum/search.php?st=0&sk=v&sd=d&sr=topics&search_id=search_tag&search_id=search_tag&selected_search_tags%5B%5D=187&selected_search_tags%5B%5D=216&selected_search_tags%5B%5D=217&search_tags=any&fid%5B%5D=140


A refresh causes different results to appear (barring the top post).

Secondly: the sorting of these results is performed per-page rather than over the result set. The above query filters by "Views" and the dropoff per page is far from the actual list of most viewed posts.
