Hello,
I would like to post another feature request, but there is nothing to search
inside newsgroups before posting double requests.
At the moment, the Search link just searches (with Google sdearch :\) in the
entire web. Not really useful.
Thank you.

Except for a few inapropriate and silly advertisements that Google inserts as
the first few entries, I see a good list of POV-ray-only newsgroup links when I
use the Search bar (at least when using the search page's website portal.) But I
usually find what I am looking for within the first 2 pages of the search; I
have not looked past that, to see if there are links that have nothing to do
with POV-ray.

Or you could just use Google and:

your search terms site:povray.org

which will restrict all search results to povray.org

I'm sure people with greater familiarity might know the syntax for searching
only within a specific group, say pbi

The website admin should be able to restrict the search bar to just the 
povray.org domain with a little tweaking.
