Google removes plus operator from searches

And the hoi polloi ain't happy about it.

Apparently Google+ has the great masses of unwashed misusing the "+" operator that allowed you to specify that a term had to appear in the search.

Now, Google says it has expanded the functionality of the quote marks so that if you put a single word in quotes, it will also require that word to appear in the search.

Wonder how the research librarian community feels about this.
