I think we need to teach "future generations" to sue more advanced
searching techniques. For instance, try searching for:

    "Solomon curse" david -wilde

with quote marks and minus sign as shown. Alternatively, search for:

    "Solomon's Curse" "house of David"

as shown.

Of course you could solve the issue in this case by writing a
Wikipedia article about (your sense of) "Solomon Curse" ;-)
