Is search broken?

I was looking for an old thread.

I typed 'that's not my' into the search (without quotation marks) and it comes up with not one thread or thread title. I find it hard to believe that in the whole history of Mumsnet no one has ever said "that's not my"... something.

Other searches work.

Huffwardly, Search is working (or at least it was just now!)

But it doesn't allow for people's spelling "idiosyncracies" - have you tried 'thats not my'? wink

It wouldn't let me cut across the topic yesterday.

I have been having a similar thing when I type a word with 'punctuation' into the include/exclude words box - 'thats not my' brings up loads of results whereas 'that's not my' brings up none.

It has happened with some other words - co-operative was one I tried last week and it found no matches even though the word is used on MN complete with hyphen.
