Q: Can I use complex logical statements?
A: Sure. You have already seen the example with "cup | cups" above, let's try something else. For example, you are looking for threads with "laptop" which is not "dell". You would add an alert "laptop -dell"
N.B. A few important things to remember with complex logical alerts:
Double quotes " " effectively mean logical AND (search for this AND that). Take a look at the different results:
"notebook | laptop" will be looking for both notebook AND laptop
In regards to mixing quotes and OR operator "|", the correct way to do it would be "4gb" | "microsd". If one were to use "4gb | microsd", the results are identical to "4gb microsd" since "|" is not considered a valid character which is indexed, and is therefore omitted, unless used as an OR operator (outside the quotes)
Also, AND is a default search operator, so if you are searching for a phrase, "AND" is automatically assumed
