    Search using the wildcard symbol (*) is no longer supported.

    Same moron that did something that made my previous Splinter search fail to work. It's been active for 4 or 5 years, then all of a sudden... it comes up with nothing. I've not tried to figure out why, but I had a ton of exclusions to get rid of the repro crap. I expect it has something to do with that.

    Just did a quick google search on it and there is a lot of other amazed and displeased people commenting on lots of other forums...

    I can't believe they would do something so stupid as this!

    Like I read somewhere else:
    Ebay: if it isn't broken, then keep fixing it until it is...

    So there was a way that allowed to filter out all these crappy things I wouldn't be interested in anyway?

    In most any search engine, you can use the minus sign to exclude terms.


    So, for instance at ebay . . .

    Code:
    abu jacket -twill

    . . would return results with "abu" and "jacket" without the word "twill" in the description.


    Works the same with Google Search and others. .
