Another thing that would be nice is an exact phrase search syntax for "and I really f***ing mean THIS string EXACTLY!"

Google already does that if you put a + sign in front of the word or string you MUST have in the results. Combined with putting exact strings of words in " marks it works just fine.

so instead of searching for:

This must be in order

it becomes

+"This must be in order"

There are loads of other operator symbols you can use to affect the search results in other ways too.

No offense dude, but that's not exactly scientific evidence.

@LordJim I don't see everything around me as being in opposition to my viewpoint, but then, I don`t live in a socialist $#!+hole, either.

uhhhhh they don't censor based on any political idealogy, and they don`t cling to any bias in search requests. I am personal friends with a lot of developer`s code writers that work for Google and that`s one thing they are very adamant about.

Not only do they censor their search results, they lie about it, and you believe it.

I quit using Google for any searches having to do with politics after I did a search for John Lott`s book, More Guns, Less Crime. I entered "More Guns, Less Crime" in quotes with proper capitalization and even included the comma. It wasn`t until the 4th page of search results that I got a hit with that exact phrase. It shows up now, but in the first few weeks after it`s publication, it was like it didn`t exist.

Maybe they`ve changed in the past few years, but I still don`t trust them.

Old Ollie,

When literally every aspect of life you see around you is in opposition to your viewpoint then you are either an inspired visionary or something else.

The odds are not in favour of inspired vsionary.
