Why must I always switch to #verbatimtool in order to get useful results from +Google
The official word, apparently, is that, "The searches you make on Google are usually improved to help minimize your time spent searching and get you the information you really want."
I realize that Google makes more money by catering to the lowest common denominator, and I'm sure that does something for the value of my stock, but can we dispense with the doublespeak and presumption? If I have to switch to verbatim mode for 95% of my research, you aren't improving my searches or saving me time
. I know we're a small minority, but some of us actually think like a computer when we use a search engine. One might hope that Google, an organization with such tremendous engineering talent, could empathize.
Perhaps Google could at least offer us a way to disable or fine tune "idiot mode" for our accounts? Alternatively, when I go out of my way to use quotation marks and other operators in a non-verbatim search, perhaps Google could take them a bit more seriously?
