steps to reproduce:
Search for $ or ^

Searching for $ is treated as a flat search and we return 1000 add-ons which are not related to the search term.This might be confusing for our users.

We should probably show some user message like -"That is not a valid search term.Please try entering something more specific"
We're not getting that many queries for "$" and "^" to justify special behavior for those terms.

You're the only one that does it.
I guess I could consider doing this if the message said:

"Sorry Krupa, we are ignoring you."
