No, but that's not what you said; you said don't raise silly exceptions.
:) There's a difference' silly != 0.
Returning 0 results when there's a query structure error is worse then
returning an error. You're just masking an end users mis-use of the
system; at least errors might generate feedback. No results would
likely lead one to belive the site has a horrible search backend or no
In the cases where I've had to catch the query prior to passing it to
the catalog, one has the opportunity to inform the user.
