This one?http://www.hotukdeals.com/misc/john2020md-joke-thread-1589292



Erm, yes that's the one.oO

If I do an advanced search in misc for threads with joke in the title, that one doesn't come up, very odd.

I have just done an advanced search with just the word 'joke' and it showed. I would imagine it's because of your search criteria that it didn't show up.

The thread is quite old, so I Made sure that my search criteria requests posts from a year ago or older (the default is 6 months and newer). And to narrow it even further; as I knew the thread has tons of comments I searched for threads with at least 500 replies.

I knew the username of the guy who created the thread though, so I didn't need to use the search function. I cheated when finding the thread when answering your post

Make use of the 'save misc thread' button just below the thread description so you don't lose interesting threads again. You can find your saved threads in your profile http://www.hotukdeals.com/profile/spoo

Thanks, I misinterpreted the time criteria in the advanced search options. I though selecting "find posts from 6 months and newer" would bring up any thread with responses in the past 6 months, not just threads started in the past 6 months.
