Pity it didn't come. 
I would have been able to answer accordingly, mind you. I cannot understand why you are always so short-tempered if someone reports a problem. But if you want war, you get war if need be. Consider that _you_ are the first to complain if someone has not properly searched the archives. Yet it's really a sort of evidence of incapacity if you have to use google because ht:dig is so horribly awkward. And ht:dig doesn't just exist since yesterday. If there's a search functionality provided, I'd at least expect the basic things (and version numbers with dots inside ARE basic things) to work properly.
You are not the one who programmed this ... umm ...  thing. So there's no need to give a "mean" response, as you call it. The only mean response I accept is from the programmer himself, who might probably have a go at me with a ridiculous "How dare you complain! There's more than basic functionality implemented! Mind you, it can sort by Time AND Score! Which tool except mine is able to do THAT!"

That was a good one. I *started* with B19, but went up to 1.1.5..1.1.8 or so. :-)
