The search restrictions are rediculous on this forum

Okay, I am getting sick of not being able to use the search function on these forums because of all the words/abbreviations that are considered too common or too short. It's common practice here to tell new users to "search before they post", but how can they do that if they are unable to use most trackmania-related terms in their search? Please remove these ridiculous restrictions or just change the search function to use a google custom search. It would give better, unrestricted results and even take the load from people using the search off of the tm-forum server.
