So, what you're saying is, don't bother working on it because you're not going to pay for it anyway?
At $60 per year, newsbin search is the most expensive search service available. Newsleechers unlimited search is $29.99 per year and that includes use of newsleecher without having to purchase it first. Personally, I'm not going to pay $60 a year for use of the search function. Failing newsleecher, I'll simply continue to use one of the dozens of free search and nzb services available. Of course,that's just me. I'm sorry if I hit a neurve with this post, however, the only reason I took the time to write is because I would like very much to see newsbin search succeed. I'm just not sure it can at its current price point. That's just comming from someone who has spend the last 5 years or so on the newsleecher forum, and more importantly the last few months that Spiral has disappeared. There are a lot of angry newsleechers over there. You can either benefit from that, or you can charge twice what they do and risk antagonising a huge instant customer base. My 5 cents.I would like nothing more than to see a true competitor to Super Search and this could be it.

The search term
should do what you want.

the problem with the "gir -girl" type of search still exist, but as far as I've understood, this is due to design of NewsBin's Internet Search and cannot be changed easily, right? But this type of search term isn't handled well by other search engines either.
