Amazon search has a lot of room for improvement. They could learn a lot from Craigslist which has a pretty thorough syntax. You can't add "not" to Amazon searches to weed out the noise. I was searching for 4 cell LiPos and had no way to filter out the 2S, 3S, 6S. There are a lot of 3S to wade through!

I think Amazon had "not" and "and" syntax at one time but took it away? I could be mis-remembering.

Not to say Craigslist is perfect. Used car dealers know how to make their crap shows up show up for stuff you really don't want to see by adding a block of "keywords". Interestingly, it is hidden on the mobile search but you can see it on the desktop browser experience. Just add another "not" clause and you're good to go. I'd think that Craigslist could easily detect these and keep them from being posted.
