  1. Start with "jeff gers" to bring up both "Jeff Gersh" and "Jeff Gerstmann".
  2. Exclude Jeff Gersh by searching for "jeff -gersh gers". This results in only "Jeff Gerstmann", as expected.
  3. Now, switch the arguments around and try searching for "jeff gers -gersh" ---> 'tis but a barren wasteland

I dont know if we actually support the - operator in search.

Yeah, probably not. I just wanted to see if it worked and it seems to have been implemented partially, but maybe activated by mistake. It doesn't seem like a coincidence that it works at all. For example, start with "Jeff" and keep appending - operator before each last name that comes up, and it works until something that is not a - operator word is added afterwards.
