I first used the term "tuna" and got 503 hits thruout the forums...randomly checking some, no mention of tuna with in the threads.
I then used "fish"...I got 163 hits and again many had no mention of fish. I narrowed it to the Gen'l forum and got 70 hits....many had no mention of fish.

DC - I think the search function is working, in fact it is working too well. What you are finding when you look for tuna, for example, is words like "fortunate", "unfortunately", etc. The search function isn't very sophisticated in that you can't search for whole words only. To find "tuna" enter "(space)tuna". This should work better.
