no .. we actually want to boost.
with "ORDER BY score, date" the date would only be a tie breaker.

we really want to significantly boost the score of any document that is more recent.
the use case is a news site, where in most cases people will not care about content from a
year ago if there is content about the same topic from a week ago.
