    Fix the Search function, please.

    I think there's something wrong with the Search function, or me. I can't find a way to make it search on more than one word. E.g. if I enter "Performance Viewpoint" (with or without the quotation marks) it returns what appears to be some (not all) of the hits on "Performance". Totally ignores "Viewpoint". I've tried various common syntaxes with no difference. Is there a way to make it work? If not, please fix it.

    I just searched for:
    "best car" - no results
    best car - no results
    car - no results

    You've got to be kidding me. No posts in entire forum with "car" in title or message? That can't be right.

    Ditto on the search function.

    It doesn't appear to recognize acronyms. You get nothing for FSA or BMC, however Cervelo and Shimano you get scads.

    I mentioned in another search related thread, but yes, acronyms seem to be non-searchable. Or maybe it's just short words ("HP" "Pro" being two I tried recently).
