How do I search for a pentax Q in the marketplace?

Seriously, it's not working. I want only posts with "Pentax Q" in the title, and no matter what I do, I get a list of random unrelated crap -- or an error indicating nothing is tagged with 'pentax'. I'm not even searching for tags!

The forum search requires search terms of 3 characters or more, at least for the first term. You might have better luck with a Google search, using something like "site:The Pentax Marketplace | Sell Pentax | Photographic Equipment for Sale - PentaxForums.com Q" in the search box.

Edit: Sorry, didn't realize the forum software would garble my attempt at a search term. Trying again, the Google search term should be (leaving out the "Code:"):

Code:
site:www.pentaxforums.com/forums/photographic-equipment-sale/ Q

Search for "pentax Q" or "pentax-q" instead. By writing Pentax Q just with a space you search for both Pentax and/or Q, it's just like google just not as "smart".

I've tried putting it in quotes, but have not had any luck. I'll just keep checking eBay, the marketplace I can live without.
