Search function.
I was using search and wanted to look the following four words up; "hard", "drive", "name", "changed". It omitted the word "name" because it was too common. I can understand the logic if the word was used on its own but with multiple words, that can help narrow down the search and make it easier to find what I'm looking for...

Just a suggestion. Search should allow all words, even common words. As its the searchers fault for being to broad. What if someone used the word "name" and I'm looking for that word as part of other text? It means I can't find it!

You're so polite about it. You're also right. It shouldn't do that!

Now, maybe it's okay to reject some words, like: the, this, that, is (depending on what the definition of is is) etc.
