Default Heads up on Ebay "Boxing" Searches

Noticed this fairly recently, I'm sure others have to.

Just a heads up. Simply putting in the search term boxing will bring up anything on Ebay with the word "box" in it. (ie. box sets, box of stuff, candy box, etc..). It can get very frustrating.

I had noticed this in the search engines of several other shopping sites over the years, but Ebay had avoided this weird glitch until very recently.

This can be avoided by putting the word boxing in quotes like so: "boxing"

Note, if you put the full phrase in quotes, it will likely not pick up the term unless those words are together in that exact order and terminology, so best to just put the word "boxing" in quotes and whatever you want to search relating to that out of quotes. (ie. "boxing" cards)
