Default Dont know where to ask this question

me, wishing to save all you MVPs time answering a question
you've already answered 1000 times this year, I always put
the start date of the search somwhere in 2000 or 2001,
hoping to get more answers.

However I never get more that the last 2 weeks, whatever I
put as a starting date.

What am I doing wrong?

The key word is ARCHIVE. Recent posts (however demarcated,
a week or a month or a year) are usually stored in Place_1.
Posts older than "recent" are removed to archival Place_2.

Huh? Usenet doesn't work that way. You might be thinking of email, but
I can't be sure.
