LQ Search: Can there be a way to search for tiny words?
I realize that it's very practical to avoid matching for words like if, or, is, an, it, and this sort of thing, but can there (or is there?) a way to tell the search engine to deliberately search for a small word/string of two characters?
I tried using quotes (single and double) as well as a plus-sign like a Google search would use, but to no avail.
Maybe either a check box on the search page to disable small word discarding? Or the option to enclose the small word in [something] to force a search for it?
Perhaps this feature would still discard the common small words if given (like it would refuse to search for a known list of common words like if, an, it, is) and maybe also would discard common double letters, like mm in "common".
