I can only get as far back as 2007?

Is there a way to find older posts and threads or have they been culled, forever to be consigned to the ether?

You can use Advanced Search by clicking on the cog icon at the top right of the screen. Weird that it's not working when searching from your profile, either a bug or a limitation of the software I guess.

The search engine can only display the last 1000 results of any search, so in Jp’s link his last 1000 posts go back to 2007. As Risil said, the way to get round this is to use the Advanced Search facility and either restrict the search by using appropriate keywords, or set date limits for the search in the appropriate boxes.
