Actually it doesn't.
There are numerous threads I've participated in that covered issues and
solutions that are still relevant. Being able to track these down so I
can just link to them, or at worst update the solution, is far easier
than always starting from scratch.
Best way to locate such a thread would be with a query like:
site:wordpress.org/support SEARCH TERMS TO MATCH kafkaesqui
Note that weird moniker hooked to the end. External search engines will
find a match only when my 'username' appears *anywhere on the thread's
page*, making it more likely I'll find what I want (well, it used to).
bbPress' search, while very useful, doesn't give a hoot about my name
appearing anywhere but in the reply field.
