Default For wvwoman - How to use "Search this thread"

The "Search this thread" field works like Google: you need to put the whole name "Adam R. Gwizdala" inside quotation marks to tell it you want the exact phrase. Without quote marks, the program thought you meant 3 separate search terms -- and the "R." was too short to process, so it rejected the whole request.

What to do: Under "Search this thread," type either the whole name inside quotes, or type just one unique search term -- "Gwizdala" in this case -- and it will work.

But OMG why don't I just tell you what the comment was? Because "Search this thread" is a great tool to have at your fingertips. I use it mainly for this "classic" thread, to check whether some gem I'm about to post has already been posted, but there are plenty of other uses for it. Very handy tool.
