I'm looking for the raw milk thread (the one with the various suppliers listed), and struggling I've tried searching for the words and some of the people who have posted in the thread but it's not coming up with the goods. Actually, when we find it, can it be made a sticky?

A search for "raw milk" now successfully finds the thread.

We do need the reports of poor results to refine things.

To recap search used to be pretty good, but at the pain of it taking a long time to post as the search indexing was done when posting and using a clever set of algorithms.

We dropped that in favour of a more builtin system that got rid of slowness when posting. There was a clear trade off in quality of search, but as I say some of that is tweakable if people whinge and give examples.
