Issues with the Search system

Specifically today I’ve noticed it seems to not ignore slashes in a title on Drowned in Sound, e.g.

Search with slash:

Search without slash

But more generally it seems to have real difficulty finding posts in ways I can’t even usefully explain.

It feels to me like its priorities are all wrong. The title of a topic should be weighted far higher so that it considers words in a topic title as more significant.

Moreover if I search for a title I expect it yo link to the last post I read in that topic, or at least to have that option: when I search for topics more often than not it’s to add to them. If I’ve never read them it would naturally take me to post 1 in any case.
