I have been seeing more and more searches coming into my.OAI (
http://www.myoai.com ).

The unfortunate thing is that a lot of those searches are coming in
incorrectly formatted so no results are returned.

The searches look like this: "Petzold A [au]" or "Hastings Cent Rep [TA] AND
14 [VI] AND 4 [IP]", some kind of variant on PubMed syntax and I would guess
that they are produced by some sort of automatic query formulator.

I am not sure where these searches are coming from, I would need to dig into
the logs for that, but I first wanted to put out a message and let that
person know that I am more than happy to help them produce correct searches.
