Erm, sorry, no. I have had enough interaction with wannabe GSoC
students to know this is in no way true, many are not even able to
perform the most basic search involving 2 keywords, let alone more
complex searches. Implying that under 30 means tech savvy is a very
big leap you take, there :) So no, people are indeed too dumb to use 2
keywords, in very many cases. And if they don't find something in the
first 3 lines they give up and ask instead, so others do it for them
(something they don't even think of, duh!).

Well, I have in the past, and I do a lot of searches on a daily basis.
I am almost double the 30 threshold you use and another example on why
your assumption is wrong ;-)
