    Keeps saying number of words is less than three even if it not and doesn't return any results

    Works fine for me. But then again I could just be extra special. May I ask what terms exactly you were searching for to see if it functions for me or not?

    Use either the simple or advanced search and try any 3 words in either the post or title search. Let me try it again in any case

    I found the problem - can you believe it? It does not work if "TW" (no quotes) is a keyword !!!!!

    An oversight perhaps.

    Could be a security guard against autobots which are non-members and manage to elude the public Turing test. The search feature might be rejecting any word it perceives as an invalid English word by consulting a dictionary.
