Wild Card acceptance.

Classification: Query
So I can search for everyone named James born in a certain year in certain location and get 20,000 results returned. However if I put a couple of wild cards for surname such as H??D I get a rather infuriating message saying the search results are "too many", why too many, I think this is ridiculous, if returning all results in database is fine , why shouldn't it be fine to use something like h* as the number of results will be far less then leaving the field blank. Searching would be vastly improved if we could just return all names with H* etc.
