Yesterday I had asked the question "Facebook Login Broken?". Today I went to the Question submission form and typed in Facebook.. and immedieately a list of suggested / similar questions popped up. My yesterday's question being the last. So I continued typing Facebook Login Broken and found that yesterday's questions completely went off the radar. Why is that? Isn't it important to show that to the user as it is the "same" as what he's actually asking now?

Yes, the search implemented here is not great.

This site is using mysql, for which we do not have good search implementation. For postgres search works better.
