If you search for [-a], or [-b] and similar, you'll get (in my tests) 2 results, which can be expanded to 10... but they're all from YouTube. Does anyone know what's happening here?

And these ones as well.

google.com/search?q=-the+-de

Probably don't want us to know how many pages/files are in Google's index.
