Site Searching

I think you'll find that there are no boards that support 3 character searching. There is a default minimum word search of 4 characters imposed by MySQL on purpose so as not to grind your server to a halt. You can do some customization to allow 3 character searching but almost no one does it.

Flood control is there on purpose as well otherwise one could write a script to hammer the site and produce a similar affect of a denial of service.

I realize you see it as an inconvenience but it's there on purpose as a safety measure on all sites.

1. Bleeping Computer returned search results with 3 characters entered: RAR files.

2. I tried the google search with site: malwarebytes.org

It returned a number of hits for the search criteria. Only one was relevant. The others were not relevant to the search criteria.
