Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

So new search for the sites defaults to "and"; adding more terms narrows scope. That's cool. I know/assume Chat's search wasn't overhauled and I don't expect half as much attention to be paid to Chat's search, but could we at least get Chat search to default to and? It makes it very very hard to find specific messages in chat.

Note that you can actually use "and". – Tim Stone Feb 4 '13 at 22:25
@TimStone huh, I tried explicitly using or on normal search and it didn't work, I assumed chat ignored it as well. Still, I think implicit and makes more sense – Ben Brocka Feb 4 '13 at 22:33
Yeah, that's fair. Also, for extra fun, you can break chat's search by only searching for and or or. – Tim Stone Feb 4 '13 at 22:37
