    Default Any way to search only web browser posts and omit desktop related posts

    Often the inclusion of desktop related posts add to the "off target" results of a search. You have some search options at the top of the advanced search, why not two new options:

    Only web server posts

    Only desktop posts

    Or perhaps "exclude desktop posts" and "exclude web server posts"

    Thanks.

    Is there any way to do advanced searches to specify all words or exact phrase, as there is in the wiki advanced search?
