Why does Google limit its searches with 32 terms? I think other search engines seems to not limit but adding more terms for some reasons such as filtering does not work, for example in Yahoo.
For example when we search for an artist/painter with knowing her or his first name and photograph. We might want to search for who he or she is. Let's think her name is Angelica.Can you give an actual, meaningful, example requiring so many terms?
That's the two words. Additional filtering terms will be added. Angelica artist -kauffman. After it, Angelica artist -kauffman -pozo. Then Angelica artist -kauffman -pozo -mesiti. The process might continue in this way until related one to be found. This apparently could be a real example. Sometimes pages might be more than 25 and after filtering some terms and results the number of pages might not decrease because new pages might be added. I think the topic was reason of 32 terms, not whether so many terms required or not.Apparently not.
Which is two words, Not thirty-two.
And now we're up to five.Then Angelica artist -kauffman -pozo -mesiti.
Should all searches be practical? If you have a limited information as the example of artist you cannot be practical. What could be better way to find image of related artist, knowing his or her face, if you don't want unrelated ones? I think the answer is the filtering option and this means adding new terms, doesn't it?. When adding new terms one cannot know where to stop.And now we're up to five.
- You have still failed to come up with a specific example.
- Your "meta-example" has no logical end. No matter what the limit is - and there will always be a limit, since we can't build a computer larger than the universe - you can always say "but what if you need a trillion and one search words?" And before you pooh-pooh that as impractical, I would argue you've pretty much reached the level of practicality long before 32.
Did you not understand post #17? You have a particular point of view. Most people do not agree with it. The developers of the browser do not agree with it. Get over it and move on.Should all searches be practical? If you have a limited information as the example of artist you cannot be practical.

Should people always do practical searches, do people not wonder about just for fun or for learning new things? If you are wondering about collocations with the word case such as bow case, knife case what would you do, how would you search the collocations without filtering?
The software developers are assuming that people will be making reasonable (i.e., practical) searches.Should all searches be practical?
This...It should be about benefit vs cost: there aren't enough people needing to search 32+ terms at once, to justify the computational cost (which should increase by each added term) that it would bring.
