I don't think the Search function is working properly, or something is configured incorrectly.
Let me demonstrate...
So I was trying to find a recent thread that I posted which I know contains the word "upper" in it.
I did a global search, and got the following results:
Hmm, it's not there. And there is only one result that's dated 2009.
But then, if I do an advanced search and only look in the Automotive Chat section, I get the following:
As you can see, this search produced a lot more recent results, seven dated 2009.
But shouldn't that second search be a subset of that first search? How is it that there are MORE recent results from the second search compared to the first search?
Something is wrong with the global search.
