Why is the Social-Politics forum not available to search? It does not appear in the list of forums.

I just checked in the forum configurations and that section has search indexing turned off. So the index that the search uses will never add posts from that section.

I recall in the past that GRB had some issues with throughput and the databases had to be pruned a bit. It could be the politics forum was removed from indexing for that reason, or it could have been intentional to make it harder for people to dig up previous posts to call out people.

Either way, it that forum was created prior to the current Mods and Kyle taking over, so i'm not sure the reason. I'm also hesitant to enable indexing of that forum since - if it was disabled for performance/technical reasons - it could impact the stability of the forum.

I suspect it was done for the same reason you can’t Quick Reply in Politics. Most likely unintentional but maybe not.

I remember a lot of posters didn't want the political topics plaguing their "View active topics" list - maybe that's related to the indexing?
