Is there some technical, philosophical, political reason that search on StackOverflow does not provide a basic "match all terms" feature (aka AND search)?
I'm well aware that we can use Google but that's beside the point. Why is this so hard to add to StackOverflow search? The simplest approach would be to allow a + prefix in front of each term that must exist in the target question.
This addition would almost single handedly improve the effectiveness of the search by simply reducing the number of matched results returned.
With this option you can trim down the results to a more manageable size and then relax the criteria if you don't find what you want in the results.
In my experience this is the only sane way to search when dealing with a very large possible result set.
So, once again what's so hard about adding the + prefix to StackOverflow search? It's a great resource, just such a shame it has a time-wasting and ineffective search.
