No  need to get hostile. I am very calm over here, but the word convey  no
warmth  (being  pure  text). I fully agree that Google Suggest  is  rarely
helpful  and I no longer use it. The suggestion are more of a  distraction
and  a hindrance (bloat) and they rarely complement the process which  the
searcher  understakes.  As  for "search_term1  search_term2"  having  more
results  than "search_term1", I have seen it before. It's a Google oddity,
which is somewhat normal, yet by no means predictable. *smile*
