I think we'd have to get Sari in on this one, though - I was just thinking how you can't end a sentence in "for", for whatever reason that is... :)

(Who says Google is correct, anyway?)

There is a rule about ending a sentence with a preposition, but it doesn't always apply.

I'd say admin is correct on this one. In order to not have this sentence end in a preposition, you'd have to say "Find for what you're looking?", which sounds very Yoda-like, and isn't correct.

Many readers do not recognize the difference between ending a sentence with a preposition whose object appears earlier in the sentence and ending a sentence with a preposition that has no object.

Then Admin is correct, and I guess I'm now banned... :)
