dear google, i appreciate that you support stemming (at least in english), so i’ll find e.g. plural when searching for singular – but please, please don’t show me results for “wordpress window upload” when i search for “wordpress windows upload“. even searching for “windows” (with quotation marks) doesn’t help, i have to explicitely exclude the singular form (although this might hide some potentially useful results from me..).

you talk to me a lot normally (“did you really mean..”), why don’t you ask me something like “we have included ‘window’ in your search – ignore it“?

update: just found out there is a way to override stemming – put a plus before the word: “+windows“. google doesn’t expect everybody to guess that right, do they?
