I guess I'm alone in thinking the new search is a positive step in the right direction? It sure didn't solve the problem but it's better, in my
experience.. Of course, I use modifiers for searching and that makes a big difference. i.e.. Instead of typing "Wrabbit2000 guide presidents" I'll
type "+wrabbit +guide +presidents -washington" for instance. So I get precisely what I want returned (far more often than I ever did on the old one)
and not what I don't.
Still not perfect ...and a search form with boxes to automate boolean term use would be really nice for people who don't want to mess with the
technical syntax of "search speak" but this one at least seems to work reliably with it.
* For not missing posts and things that cause duplicates, I REALLY wish people would use at least a segment of the headline in the right wording at
some point ..at the very least, use a proper name or two that are unmistakably tied to the story ...and with the right spelling on them. It'd work
wonders for getting hits on previously posted items.
