    bug with stratics search results, when using a search engine to search for things such as EM drops, if someone is no longer selling the item, and its been totally deleted from the thread the old post still shows up on google.

    this makes using a search engine for stratics extremely frustrating because you get lots of false hits.

    maybe this was intended to get more google hits, but makes for a poor reference functionality.
