Why is the search feature so crappy, or (more likely) what am I doing that is getting such crappy results from the search feature?
I searched for "The Walking Dead" because of the TV series thread that was going a couple of weeks ago. I got a bunch of randomness.
What am I doing wrong?

It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
Try using double quotes in your search to for exact phrase.
Search key: The Walking Dead
The search feature will search the database for all words with the and walking and dead. The chances of having those three words in a thread is highly likely.
Search key: "The Walking Dead"
The search feature will now search the database for the pattern found between the double quotes in all threads.
Search key: AMC "The Walking Dead"
This time the search will search the database for all threads with AMC and the phrase The Walking Dead.
Search key: "The Walking Dead" "end of the series"
You can also do multiple phrases.
