(why) are "i5", "i7", for example, invalid search terms?

    as far as i can tell, you can't search the MBA forum for "i5", for example.

    am i crazy?

    isn't this something worth fixing?

    too short a search term and skynet filters it out

    sorry if that was posted in the wrong place.

    "i5 i5 i5 i5 i5 i5 i5 i5" gives no results.

    "the" gives results.

    it seems like two letter/number terms are ignored, which seems a bit ineffective considering.
