I haven't had access to search for a good week or more.

Just chiming in to report the same issue, on and off for about two weeks now. I occasionally get the same message when trying to view the forum.

This still seems to be a problem for me - no access to search for at least a week.  :(
I don\'t know whether to be a good example or a horrible warning.

Frequently plays up, easier to type your topic in to Google and see if Google can search it better.
Cheers,

I've found Google is better that DuckDuckGo - a few times Duck has returned nothing but Google found things.

Certainly better at tracking every single thing you do

Search function isn't working for me either.

Yes, I had a few reports about this and have raised it with the technical admin people.

Google has annoyed me by following me around the town (various work places etc) with a search I did at home for some medical items - for weeks.  Thankfully it was just a foot surgery but still...  Spurred me to get a VPN and to move to DDG.  I have never noted an issue with DDG not turning up some results for what I was looking for but I don't really compare either.  Just curious, but when have you noted that? When looking for something new old or just rather esoteric like our gaming items?

I'm also having these problems - search and advanced search don't work for me.
