    hmm, seems strange. Though it did ignore the "in a" part.

    Maybe because Google like simple interfaces, and they decided it was unnecessary clutter. That's just a guess.

    They still remove "and" from your search query, but other common words seem to be getting through.

    They still do remove many common words, but don't bother to report it explicitly

    No news here, other than they don't show the ignore message anymore.
