AND logic between search terms(Instead of OR)

So I noticed that searching for an addon/modpack on the curseforge app will give results for each individual search term(For example: searching for "Not the bees" in the MC modpack browser will return all modpacks corresponding to either "not", "the", OR "bees"(6451 results). Whereas searching for just "bees" will return all modpacks corresponding to "bees"(45 results).)

This seems absurd. Why, should I get less precise results when I use more precise search terms? Shouldn't it work the opposite way, like it does on the website?

Or, at least, could we get a way to group search terms together by, for example putting a plus sign between them or putting them between parentheses?

Thanks in advance ;)
