Yeah.... that really sucks. I had a real hard time searching for DPS (Damage Per Second) on a couple of game forums. No one ever spells it out and the search functions would ignore the TLA (Three Letter Acronym).

I understand that searching for many common three letter words like "the" or "and" would be abusive to the cognitive capacity of the host hardware but it would be nice if systems could be "smart" and recognise some of the words that are important to the content.
