Just a quick questions:

  1. Why can we not search just for questions or just for answers?
  2. Will this be a future option?

I think it may be useful for people, especially when they are looking for specific searches.

When searching, add the term "is:question" (or "is:answer") sans quotation marks, to search only for one of the other.

You can read about other useful search operators on the appropriate Help page.
