I wrote up a question on stackoverflow "How to insert an NSDate into a column in an Azure managed database?" and added three tags: ios azure and nsdate
I wanted to find the question so I searched for "ios azure nsdate" which returned no matches. If I search for "azure nsdate" the question is found.
I thought that search results would be the union of "questions with title matches" and "questions with tag matches" but that doesn't seem to be the case.
While it could be an intended feature (requiring tag searches be flagged as such when submitting a search) a typical user could not know beforehand if a certain word was in the question's title, or attached as a tag to the question.
I saw this question which suggests that users searching for term XYZ enter "title:XYZ or [XYZ]" but this becomes ridiculously clumsy in my case with three simple terms.
So my question is: is this truly the intended behavior or is it a search bug? If it is the intended behavior, I do suggest it be modified.
