Summary:A search for the artist "-hearts-" doesn't work.
Description:Doing a post search for the artist "-hearts-" acts like just doing a blank search. I'm guessing it's mistaking the - as denoting a negative search term.

I don't really see this as a bug so much as a mistake. The search engine is working as advertised.

-hearts- should not be an approved tag and should not be used as a tag. The same goes for any other potential tag that starts with a minus sign or hyphen. We should not be getting any such tag from Danbooru either. An alternate tag should be discussed and approved in the Gardener's Guild forum.

I'm torn on this one, but I think we do need to rename this tag, or something. Aliases will not work in this case either, I think. I'd have to review the code, but it's likely it would cause tag searches for -exampleTag to be switched to the alias. We'll probably have to do hearts_(artist) int his case, and hope no other artist decides to use a - as the first letter of their name...
