I use QS a lot, and I am never interested in comments. So I explicitly
list fields to look into.

People who complain about QS not looking into closed bugs by default
should learn the logic behind it. QS is for advanced users, not for
newbies. So it should be built with advanced users in mind, who can
easily prepend ALL to take all bugs into account. Newbies can and should
use the search form.
