Not sure what you call primary-level searches, but if you deduced the
complaints were only about searches for base characters, then that's
not so. They are long discussions with many sub-threads, so it might
be hard to find the specific details you are looking for.
However, the conclusion was very firm, and since we made the folding
optional 3 years ago, we had no complaints.
