The global search is flawed too albeit a bit less: it finds my "ASTRTEN" post, but does not find it if I enter "generalization" - apparently it finds only starts of words, and slash is not considered to be words separator (searching for "generalization" in my local posts returns a bunch of unrelated posts which contains words only remotely resembling "generalization").

 

Search is one of the most important feature of each technical forum.
