Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

This seriously cripples any search capabilities.

Consider:

http://api.stackapps.com/0.8/search?intitle=soapi&order=desc&sort=activity vs

http://api.stackapps.com/0.8/search?intitle=Soapi&order=desc&sort=activity vs

http://api.stackapps.com/0.8/search?intitle=SOAPI&order=desc&sort=activity

This also begs the question "How many other textual parameters are case sensitive?"

it is my opinion that there should be no case sensitivity anywhere in the API.

Search intitle is now case insensitive.

I somewhat agree. I think that if there are case-sensitive parameters in the API, they should have some means by which they can be made case-insensitive.

What I think this should boil down to is the addition of a parameter like case-sensitive=true.

Right, everyone would start using case-sensitive=false in their search. –  Gan Dec 6 '10 at 3:44
    
@Gan: Well the default would be the opposite. –  Nathan Osman Dec 6 '10 at 6:36
