Searches in the Forum not returning hits

I have been trying to search a few things in the forum.  I either receive a "spoofing" result, or a "no results" result.  Even something as innocuous as board returns no hits.

I searched Board and got at least 50 results including the post above.

Are you using the search tab at the top left or the search in the top right?

The search tab on the top left three in would be the one to use

Use the search tab but the last choice as you how far back you are requesting.  ALWAYS change it to ALL POSTS.   By default its set to one week.

I was using the top right search. Also works at home. Looks like an issue with work spoofing.

Yes make sure to use the search TAB (next to home, help, etc) and NOT the search in the upper right corner. The one in the upper right corner is evil.
