    Is the search function really bad, or is it just me? I'm searching for info on Men In Black. This is the search criteria I used:
    Search Words: Men
    Match all search terms above. selected
    Search Forum/Archive: Home Theater Software
    Search In: Subject Only
    Search By Date: Any Date
    Search By User Name: left blank
    Search For Exact Name (case sensitive) selected
    It came back with a total of 206 topics. Following are a few of the words in subject headers that caused hits:
    commentary
    enhancement
    Entertainment
    recommendations
    MENACE
    menu
    etc.
    I searched through the first page (40 topics) without seeing one header that looked promising and decided to come here and ask "is it just me?"

    Brett,
    Well, since "Men in Black" came out on dvd in September of 2000, I seriously doubt that any current threads would have the title in question in it's header. The way this forum is set up older threads usually 3-4 months old get automatically deleted due to space constraints. Now, there might be some discussion about "Men in Black" in some of the more current threads but the discussion was secondary and probably in reference to the original topic being discussed.
