Default Why is the search on here so odd?

Not to compare, but it's not as easy to do a search on here as the "other" site. I try to search by subject only (Aluminum), yet it lists each post under that and some odd listings that don't even contain the word, then on top of that it's all jumbled. Perhaps i'm not lookin at it right or doing something wrong.

Someone please shed some light on this for me.

It's a little quirky. A fix is in the works.

Yeah, I hate how it gives you every post with your search topic in it, instead of just the main topic.

ditto, its pretty annoying, especially when the search finds one post with a lot of responses and lists every single response

It's better than it used to be.

To search for an individual, you had to know that individual's registration number.
