This one is quite easy actually. Put whatever exact term you are looking for in quotes. For example... "Surge Protector"

That way only post/threads that have that exact phrase come back in results. I manage a digital database at work and can't tell you how many times I've had to share this info with coworkers.

Thanks for this. Maybe this verbiage can be added to the advanced search area so people know.

I like it when somebody asks a question and about 5-6 posts down is the same question.

Doesn't bother me, most people think they a unique problem and too people like talk, if I think I can help I chime in. A lot on new people going camping

I think if asking repeat questions bothers you, then maybe your spending too much time on this

Well, the idea of telling people to use search has been brought up a million times yet here we are checking out the replies.

For me, it's more comforting to ask the question (even if it's been asked before) and get answers that are more specific to my situation.

Besides, almost everything has already been covered- if everyone used the search, there would be no need for a forum. FRF can be closed and we all get many hours of our lives back!
