    (I mean, really, WHY does Yahoo and Google do a better job of searching perlmonks than perlmonks does????)

I don't know about Yahoo, but search is what Google does. So don't be surprised if a Google search of the site is faster/better than the local search. Also think about how much hardware is being directed to a local search, and compare that against the Google behemoth.

So, short answer, if you really want to search Perlmonks for something, I highly recommend using Google instead of the local search .. unless you know in exactly which section the post you're after is located.
