Does anyone use the search facility?

The reason I ask is the same questions appear time and again, for example homepage hijacked. Now I've no objections at all to helping anyone if I can but if someone with a problem used the search they could probably find what they want, then if the advice didn't work they could start a new posting saying they'd tried such and such, that didn't work and ask for any more ideas to solve the problem. I suppose this is a bit of a moan but I don't really mean it that way, I'm just wondering if people notice the search facilty and if they do know its there do they use it? After all if the problem has already been solved surely it far quicker to read a couple of postings rather than waiting for someone to help.

The Spires I tried a search for search as it were before I started this thread and couldn't see anything since last year but as crx1600 has pointed out the search facility isn't working properly which I didn't know.

I use it at times but it's so unreliable I tend to forget it's there. Obviously PCA needs to remedy this problem, which I'm sure they're aware of & will do so in due course. Posts like these will hopefully 'nag' them into doing something sooner. G

I'm the same as all the above. I recently did a search for a thread which was going a couple of weeks ago and couldn't find it, though I knew it was there.

won't even find own postings - and havn't the time to put every amalgamation of words to find post that's not related to subject at hand
Quicker to just type question - and even if NEGATIVE response its much quicker that searching
