Is "About" excluded from search?


#1

I tried to search for all posts including the word “About”.
It returned 0 results, despite having a post titled “About …” in every category.
Is the word “About” excluded for some reason?

Yes it is excluded, read all about postgresql - List of StopWords in Postgres 9.1 - Super User

Current default English stopword list is:

Thank you @sam, I wasn’t aware of this.
