Use Quotes to Search for an Exact Phrase

I see many requests sent in that would best be served by using a good search engine to answer. The people asking the questions obviously have a computer available, so why not use Google, Ask.com or dogpile - or any other search engine of choice - to get answers. You have the tools at hand to answer your own questions. If you use quotation marks on either side of your request, you will get more specific answers. Instead of writing knit baby sweaters, you should write "knit baby sweaters" to narrow the hits returned to you.
