Search problem

I tried to search for posts with the word "Hulburd" and got an error message that the word is too common. Any idea what is the problem?

Jerry, for some reason, if you search for a word that does not exist in any post on this message board, that is the response you get. Troublesome and inefficient, I know, but it's been that way from Day 1.

Many thanks for your support.

But the word does exist in a post. I finally found it the hard way and posted some new photos there.

"Hulburd Presentation" brings results, but not "Hulburd". I have no idea why the Search function behaves this way. It's annoying, but short of upgrading the message board, I can't do anything about it.
