No way, you're a member of furtopia too? I thought I was the only closet furry here.

Use google if you want to search for things on MB. Just put musicbanter at the end of your search words and voila

Or search "jam band" and include the quotes and it'll search for the whole term.

For the internet searching newbs:

10 tips for smarter, more efficient Internet searching - TechRepublic
Quote:
8: Customize your searches

The plus operator (+): As mentioned above, stop words are typically ignored by the search engine. The plus operator tells the search engine to include those words in the result set. Example: tall +and short will return results that include the word and.

The tilde operator (~): Include a tilde in front of a word to return results that include synonyms. The tilde operator does not work well for all terms and sometimes not at all. A search for ~CSS includes the synonym style and returns fashion related style pages —not exactly what someone searching for CSS wants. Examples: ~HTML to get results for HTML with synonyms; ~HTML -HTML to get synonyms only for HTML.

The wildcard operator (*): Google calls it the fill in the blank operator. For example, amusement * will return pages with amusement and any other term(s) the Google search engine deems relevant. You can't use wildcards for parts of words. So for example, amusement p* is invalid.

The OR operator (OR) or (|): Use this operator to return results with either of two terms. For example happy joy will return pages with both happy and joy, while happy | joy will return pages with either happy or joy.

Numeric ranges: You can refine searches that use numeric terms by returning a specific range, but you must supply the unit of measurement. Examples: Windows XP 2003..2005, PC $700 $800.

Site search: Many Web sites have their own site search feature, but you may find that Google site search will return more pages. When doing research, it's best to go directly to the source, and site search is a great way to do that. Example: site:Intel | Data Center Solutions, IOT, and PC Innovation rapid storage technology.

Related sites: For example, related:www.youtube.com can be used to find sites similar to YouTube.

They overhauled their search algorithm in 2013, so yes. I doubt much has changed though really.
