Stopping stupid searches crashing the site


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,
Our site is relatively stable most of the time now however on occassion we have someone using our search to try and trawl the site for a single word.  Considering the size and type of the forum it's pretty obvious it's going to come back with literally MILLIONS of hits.  It causes a lockup on our database, it's basically the equivalent of searching "fish" on a fishing forum

Anyone got any way around this other than shortening the search index range?
