Greetings,

I was searching for a post of mine regarding vivisection/animal testing, however I can't seem to find it.

I've tried "vivisection" and "IAVS" (the anti-vivisection organisation in Ireland) both of which I mentioned in the post - but no results are returned.

Any suggestions as to why not?

Kindest regards,

James

The search here has never been useful or accurate. Unfortunately, there's nothing I can do about it. No swapsies.

You could try using Google like item item site:theleagueofreason.co.uk

Hi James,

I tried to find it too, but the trick via g00g + hp didn't work out in the end.
The onboard search was better just using animal + author.

Among the results this topic/posting seems most likely: viewtopic.php?p=141010#p141010
It doesn't contain a direct link to IAVS, but the last link leads to an irishexaminer article which refers to 'The Irish Anti-Vivisection Society'.

Maybe you thought to have mentioned it, remembring it being an important part of the whole subject. (?) Well - I've experienced similar with myself ;-)

And a tip just in case: your postings are often long and the search only regards the first 300 characters if you don't choose different. You wouldn't have found that link even knowing it.

sorry I couldn't find any of the other words ~ greets

Greetings,

Thanks, Prolescum.

In future, I'll just have to be less specific!

Is what Vivre said about the 300 character limit correct?

Vivre, that's the one for which I was looking! :D

Maybe you thought to have mentioned it, remembring it being an important part of the whole subject. (?) Well - I've experienced similar with myself ;-)

Yes, that's what happened - I remembered that the IAVS was mentioned and thought I'd said it rather than it being in a linked article.

I should have remembered the computer-modelling one and used that instead.

Thank you, again! ;)

Kindest regards,

James

Glad it turned out right :-)

Well, and the 300 character setting you can find bottom right on the search field (if you use the advanced search). I didn't give it a test-row to check if it works but it somehow returns different text-areas when used ;-)

cheers

It seems that Vivre answered the remaining question, so thread closed :)
