As far as one here you have to ask yourself who is really oing it in a 
way which makes no sense?

In a conversation you're more concerned about what someone said last, 
obviously. If someone said meet me for pizza at 123 someplace lane at 
2:30 then 30 minutes later and multitudes of messages later say oh wait 
make that 3:00 you would want to find 3:00 in a search over 2:30, right?

For two, I believe most people were bugging for it to be like that... 
most people found the old design too cluttered, and hard on lower window
