Sure does, thanks.
Of course, your response begs the question - How did you find those answers without being able to search?
I skimmed a couple of stickies about forum rules and posting. I also checked the first couple of pages. Didn't see anything about why search doesn't work.
Maybe someone could post a sticky in each forum that explains why you can't search. At least until it's enabled again. Otherwise, it seems like there will be a bunch of annoying posts about things that have already been answered. Like, say, this post.
