Question about search algo

The search algorithm is broken. It does not work as it should. It is faulty. It is not too advanced for us poor freelancers to understand; it is substandard rubbish.

 

Here is my proficiency rating from my profile:

But here is what happens when I search for expert freelancers called Fergus M:

And here is what happens when I search for intermediate freelancers called Fergus M:

The search tools cannot even read parameters properly. They are broken. Please fix this as a matter of urgency.

I recently changed my experience level from expert to intermediate as I wanted to see if my profile views would go up. It seems I won't find out as I show up when selecting anything but intermediate (expert or no experience level)...

 

What I would still like to know (months after asking this the first time) is, why Sue Peterson is always listed ahead of me when searching for my exact name & expert level:

Interestingly enough, when I add one word to my search it's just me:
