When I shared that Google custom search engine, I did include a
caveat: "No guarantees that the search results will cover everything
you're looking for."


The biggest problem is in cases such as this, where the searched item
appears in multiple posts in a thread, and Google only returns one of
those posts (perhaps the most recent). That may require clicking back
through the thread -- in this case, two clicks back gets you to the
original post from sagehen.
