Search is Finding Results when it Shouldnt...

Ok this is bugging me. I have a search algorithm that uses fulltext indexes to search a table of news items in binary mode. I use it on multiple site's, each of which are configured with the same database structure. On all but one of the sites the search works great, only displaying matching data, and not returning anything if nothing is found.

One site however is returning data no matter what, they seem to be having a score of -2 for the search.. I have been having trouble finding why a boolean search would return -2?

SELECT as id, news.content as `synopsis` , MAX(MATCH ( news.title, news.content, news.synopsis, users.first_name, users.last_name ) AGAINST ('adfadfadf' IN BOOLEAN MODE)) as bool_score FROM news LEFT JOIN users ON = WHERE news.disabled=0 AND MATCH (news.title, news.content, news.synopsis, users.first_name, users.last_name) AGAINST ('adgadgdag' IN BOOLEAN MODE) AND news.type_id=1 GROUP BY
