Spurred by the crusade against r0uter-switch.com spam, I decided to make a cursory search for possible router spam. Most of the posts contained no links though, so I noticed we have an advanced search for URLs.
I ran a search for
url:* router, ideally to show all posts that mention 'router' and contain a URL. It turns out that almost every word in each search result is bolded (probably because of that all-encompassing wildcard):
If I search for
url:".com" router I'll get all the sites with a .com url, and which mention 'router'. In this search, the only things that get bolded are the word 'router' and the domain portion of the URL. Great!
Could we fix the search for
url:* to only make URLs bold, since that search term itself would be very useful for searching for possible spam suspects?
