in reply to Considering Super Search

Of course, not a day goes by that I don't wish I could ignore the ravings of footpad. :) But I still want to see his good posts.

In all seriousness, those options would be extremely useful, and ++ to footpad for suggesting it, especially in the context of reading the choices as a sentence. It would be nice to find more search engines that let you write a sentence in search engine grammar and let you easily separate the wheat from the chaff.
