Actually, it's not a glitch - that's the way the software was originally designed. You have to remember the program wasn't written specifically for posting poetry, and the designers "assumed" (hey, we all know THAT word) people would want to be able to search the replies as well as the original posts.
I have seriously considered changing it, both for the reason you cite, Wes, and because it would dramatically speed up the search function. I can imagine very, very few instances where I would want to search the text of a reply for something. Trouble is, if I do remove the replies then we can't search anything but the originating post.
What does everyone else think? Are there many (any?) instances where you need to find something in a reply???
