    Been usng it since its first year, BUT... while it does a decent job and carries fewer "cooties", it is still no match for Google on the harder stuff, and not really all that great even on the easier searches.

    CAVEAT: One DOES have to apply the human intelligence to filtering out waaay too much crapola when using Google. But humans have to do THAT all-day-every-day anyway, just to deal with other HUMANS, not-even 'puters, so just about all of us have reasonably good "BS detectors", and even BETTER annoying trivia and distraction avoidance skills already.

    "End-up", rather than "live", but inside the bellies of Burmese Pythons, of course...

    Kinda neat to turn a swarm of 'em loose inside the "Silly Circle" AKA "Capitol Beltway", save that there are SOME things so noxious even a hongry Python won't eat of.

    Dang it...

    Back to the OP's question: please don't delete search function. I use it frequently and has been very helpful to me.

    I have hated Google search ever since they stopped making AND the default; i.e. if they didn't find a result with *all* the search terms they returned NOTHING. Now they "helpfully" push something at you that nearly 100% of the time is not helpful at all. And they make forcing Boolean AND functionality nearly impossible.

    Better yet? When PM does "get it right" there is hardly any of the irrelevant drivel google will also overload nearly any search with.
    Yes and yes.
