5742Problem with Exact Phrase Queries

      Of the big 3 search engines (and APIs), only Google seems to know what an exact search phrase is, despite BOSS and Bing documentation to the contrary.  The BOSS API (and Yahoo search) are using fuzzy matching, which causes exact phrase queries to return many more results than they should.  For example, consider the following query:
      "perfect uneen esteblesh jestece ensere demestec trenqeelety prevede"
      You would expect no results from such gibberish, but instead you get over 62,000 results:
      search.yahoo.com/search?p="perfect+uneen+esteblesh+jestece+ensere+demestec+trenqeelety+prevede"

      Is there a way to tell BOSS to search for the query as is without alteration?
