Why is it that we can't search for words that are three letters or less in length? It is pretty annoying, actually.

What in the FUCK could you possibly want to search for that only consists of three letters?

I usually encounter that problem when I try to search for exact titles of threads or something close. Not a big deal, but definitely annoying.

Clearly you were searching for sex advice. Clearly.

Maybe we ought to begin spelling sex differently. Secks? Secz? Let Finnish help you; seksi.

I had this problem when I wanted to see if we had a thread about the band Ash.

...from the linked thread.


If it's a serious problem and a very specific phrase you can Google it. Just type in "Offspring Forums" and then whatever you're looking for.

I was just lawling about how funny and cute I thought this post was.

Then I clicked the link and saw the second post.

Searches are taxing on the server, if I remember correctly. Limiting the number of letters prevents the server from getting overloaded with people looking for "me and my old lady" or something like that.

Yeah, but that's subject appropriate. I mean, come on, that search ends up getting limited to "lady."

That means you're a fag.

I'm sorry, my fingers met something I said to something else and I decided to not delete it. Enjoy the non sequitur.

it's generally because three and fewer letters don't really return a good search set. i do with they added more logic and allowed <three char words in quoted text, but *shrug*.

I saw that coming from a mile away, but I still loved it.

I have to admit to being unmoved.
