    Please ISI, consider to return the Google as the search engine. Nowadays the search results are completely useless since it gives back unrelated results, out of relevance order and in a list of threads instead of posts.

    Type this into the Google search engine followed by the search word(s)
    site:isiforums.net

    EXAMPLES
    site:isiforums.net project rf2
    site:isiforums.net ffb

    **** EDIT ****
    I hadn't used this search technique for several months. Now Google sometimes asks for a CAPTCHA solution with this explanation.
    Sometimes you may be asked to solve a CAPTCHA if you are using advanced terms that robots are known to use, or sending requests very quickly.

    Thanks. This is the only decent way to have good results. The proprietary forum search engine is horrid.
