What's more annoying than knowing your site has 1000s of supplemental search results?

Not being able to conveniently view them to see what's wrong …  

The Google hack mentioned here enumerates the supplemental pages of a domain, and seemed quite useful to this end.  Perhaps Google doesn't want to make our lives too easy, though, because it appears that it no longer works as before.

Then I recalled that someone had also created a great tool that reports the number of supplemental results across DCs, and I wondered if his tool broke.  It didn't.  Why?  He simply appends a "-this_is_a_random_string" to the query string, and viola!  Example:

site:www.lawyerseek.com *** -this_is_a_random_string
