If you use default search for:
Scaling algorithms implementations dgVoodoo
it will find all Dege posts only from that thread.

But if you search in Message text only or Topic titles only it won't find anything.

The only way to find the thread is searching in Post subjects and message text.

It looks there are at least 3 places to search in:
- topic titles,
- post subjects,
- message text.

Topic title of this thread looks to really be:
Re: dgVodooo 2.7.x and related WIP versions (2)
(by the way it has a spelling error: dg V o d ooo)
and can be found when searching in topic titles only for:
dgvodooo wip
(with a spelling error)
please note that the wrongly spelled word "dgv0d00o" does not appear in any post of that thread.

Threads editing makes a little mess between topic titles and post subjects.

"topic titles" is a wrong description here:

Search within:
- Post subjects and message text
- Message text only
- Topic titles only

The correct descriptions for what each function does is:

Search within:
- Post subjects and message text
- Message text only
- Post subjects of first post of topics only (in most cases this is the same as topic title,
but topic titles are sometimes different if first post was moved from a different thread, than that post has the name from that thread)

I've noticed a Vogons bug too - there are multiple mo's and they're replying to themselves.

He probably just posted on his secret secondary under cover account by mistake...

Nah it's not really a secret/malicious account, just multiple accounts using the same name and easily recognizable. #2 for example was because of this cannot log in

So you are saying that you wouldn't use the same name for your secret/malicious account as for your normal one? Kind of suspicious if you ask me.
