When I was new to SC I asked a basic “where to find” question; I got help with my immediate need but I was also told, “Searching is hard.” That made me pause before asking for more help. Back when the Internet was new I set about trying to remember the boolean logic I was once taught, but Google soon overtook me and I was convinced to start asking my desktop (no devices back then) questions in natural language. I’m not simple minded, I gained a PhD in Linguistics, but I still find SC hard to search. Probably a monastic training would have helped by embedding the structures of the pititakas in my mind.
So I do really feel that to make SC accessible to a lot more people making the search function more user friendly is vital. I sometimes feel that those terribly clever people with heaps of IT ability forget how other ‘normal’ people function. So we do really feel much gratitude is due to those who work to close the gap.
