For those of you who find the built-in Chiffboard "search" function too limited and frustrating, the Moderators highly recommend that from now on you use the new Google Really Advanced Search instead.

http://www.google.com/js/reallyadvanced.html

In particular, the ability to search for

o rhyming slang
o subtext or innuendo
o embarrassing grammatical faux pas

should prove invaluable in ferreting out those hard-to-find posts.

And if all else fails, the new "Search by odor" capability should find exactly what you're looking for.

Enjoy!

Thank goodness, I've been having a heck of a
time finding that one empirically passive site
with a paisley background. I think it smelled
of elderberries.

The Pagan community wants to know if any search engines can search by aura. A vocal minority claims to be able to do this already, by personal concentration.

If a Pagan really needed to become aware of those posts, those posts would find the Pagan. Again, backward thinking on the innertubes.
