This isn't meant as an attack or criticism or anything, but it is something I run into a lot, so maybe someone has a workaround.

I get "a", "the", "that", "of", etc. are common words that shouldn't be searchable, but I'm lost how "Thorpe" winds up in that category :(

It appears the site administrator needs to do this:

I don't see why this process couldn't be run on a regular schedule during overnight hours.

Also, there is a threshold setting that the administrator needs to increase. See this support thread:

The default threshold setting appears to be way too low.
