Actually, I've been meaning to disable the older search option now that Google is hitting the site. Maybe I could just drop it down to a 1 week period. The problem is, it's pretty processor intensive since it is searching every post using a wildcard rather than hitting a full-text index. I never got around to building one... so it really is a bad idea to leave it in place long term.
Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.
I will have to do more testing. At home, connected to my wi-fi, it worked as expected. When I was on 3G in a food court at the mall, it wasn't working. I have more errands tomorrow, I'll look at the time-stamp when I mark it read.
