Description

Rather than allowing searches by timestamp we should restrict searches to full dates. Most people don't understand timezones nor know that all our dates and times are in UTC. Letting them specify a precise time makes it more likely that they'll search for the wrong thing.

So, the timezone problem doesn't go away by limiting searches to full days. For example, if their incident happened on February 17 at 9pm EST, would they know that it was already February 18 in UTC? But we can easily widen searches to +/- 1 day and display search results like this: "There was a Tor relay at IP address [address] on or within a day of [date]".

The technical details will still contain original descriptors, so that the pro users will have the same output as before. But the average user won't care.
