OK, maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I can't imagine how.

I go to the search function, choose "all forums" and type a word in, and no matter what word I choose "even the word "THE") it still gives me this:
"Unfortunately your search didn't return any results."

The word "THE" has never been used in any forum? Huh?

Hi,

I find the search function poor. Words of only 3 letters are ignored!

That's a point, but the word "then" doesn't give any answer either...

I wonder if too much used words give a possible answer. Tried the word "arri" and it works great !

The idea in using a search engine is to compute a word that has enough meaning as to give you a link to valuable contributions, according to the subject you are interested in...

Does the word "arri" works for you, Matt ?

I enjoy Google.

Click on this link and swap QUERY for whatever you please.

The only drawback is that recent posts will not turn up, as Google's crawler takes some time to index things (just how long I'm not sure).

Good luck!
