Search Function

I know this is common to all vBulletin forums, but when I search for words of less than four characters, it gets left out of the search. I was wondering if there's some way of getting around this.

I'm mainly asking because I'll often be browsing the classified forums for items in the UK, as I'm not really interested in items from abroad. Most people selling an item in the UK will have "UK" written either in the title or description, but I can't filter out other results since "UK" is too short to be a search term.

Are there any tricks I can use to search for shorter words? Or is it just something I have to deal with?
