Default Hailing the site owners!!!

For the love of Pete, will someone please upgrade, fix, repair, change, the completely useless "Search Feature" on this site....... I think my 12 yr old nephew could design a better one. I mean really!!!!!!!

Go ahead and search for the following:
Best washing machine....

See what comes up!!!!

My New Years Wish for this site

I agree but it does work well.

The search feature here does suck badly!

It actually works quite well once you learn how to do it. I agree just typing a word into the Search button is useless. Go to the toolbar at the top and click on Search. Then click on Advanced Search. From there you can narrow by forum, poster, etc... It works well. It's just not very intuitive to get there. It's how I finally found the infamous "T-top spider" I kept hearing so much about.

Correct, it's a search tool or feature. Not a search engine.

Just use Google with the "site:" lingo. Far superior than anything that a site like this will offer - unless they subscribe and pay for the google search engine.
