Okay, so why in the world when I search for "Seasonic" in hot deals do I get 120 pages of results, mostly all with the word "Season" or "Seasoned"??  Isn't that extremely stupid?  Especial if it doesn't give priority to the original word (looked though first 2 pages and not one "Seasonic").  Plus, it's not like there's not plenty of posts with "Seasonic" in the title either.  I tried "Seasonic power" and sure enough, a bunch of Seasonic PSU posts were revealed.  I understand including the root word in the search when it's plural, but removing "ic" suffix is often a different word altogether.

Probably just the way the forum software is designed, but I really thought this deserved pointing out as being a particularly bad design.

  Hey Danzilla, 

Thanks for the feedback! We'll keep that in mind and see what we can do going forward.
