This question already has an answer here:

I'm sometimes looking for very low scored answers/question in order to find some VERY LOW QUALITY ones.

However, I can't do this with internal search. Why? Beacuse there are only 100 pages available in case there are more than 5000 search results.

If I fill "votes:-15" into internal search box, and I sort it by votes, the latest available post has 60 upvotes.

Can "search for posts with less than X score" be implemented, as opposite for already implemented special phrase votes: or at least deleted limit of pages ?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
As an addendum, it would be even better if you could search for scores <=, >=, or within a range (5 <= score <= 10). –  aardvarkk Feb 22 '13 at 16:32

I agree that it would be nice to add votes to Stack Overflow's search engine, but I don't think that it's really necessary. Why not just use the following Data Explorer queries?

Because data explorer queries hit months old data and aren't discoverable by most people... –  Ben Brocka May 19 '12 at 17:45
