    Default searching for small words

    The forum seems to be set up to only allow searches on words longer than 3 characters. This is a bit of a pain when searching for abbreviations like 'apf' or any of the million other 'tla's. Any chance of lifting this restriction?

    Correct, it appears to be a forum default setting.

    There are quite a few of those darn Three Letter Acronyms aren't there?

    Done. It's possible this could cause higher loads on the database but I've only lowered the minimum search term length to 3 required characters.
