Default Search not working?

I was trying to search for a previous post of mine using a particular word.

On the advanced search page, I punched in the word, my username, and selected "Display as posts", but the response was "Sorry - no matches". Just to be sure, I did the same search for the word "church," with the same result. This is in both Mozilla and Chrome.

It must be broken. I tried searching for Episcopal, Episcopalian communion, Episcopal communion, and just got "Sorry, no matches."

From Dale M. in another thread:
In the meantime, you may want to use Google to search these forums. The way to do that is to go to Google and type in your search words. Then before you hit the Search button, add this phrase:

Adding that phrase to your search words will force Google to search only these forums.

For example, if I type

douay liturgy sin

the results I get back will be all of the CAF threads which contain the words "douay" "liturgy" and "sin."

In fact, the very first thread in the results is this thread!
I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live,
