To the moderators - Is there a known bug with the search feature? The reason I ask is that it seems to ignore quire a few posts.

As an example, if I do a search on 120-300, it doesn't return this post:


I've tried with a few different words from various posts and it invariably skips quite a few posts. Any thoughts on this?

Hey John, how does one search for posts started with particular author. I do agree with you, the search feature on this forum is not good at all.

I wonder if it's only showing more popular posts, like those with a certain number of replies or views. The other possibility is that it searches off of a database or index that has to be updated periodically, and doesn't always include more recent posts. But I'm just guessing.
