    I scrolled down but I couldn't find the thread - it didn't seem to be on the second page either.

    So I tried to search the forum for "especially", but apparently it is too common, so you cannot search for it.

    Then I googled “site:https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/ especially” and found this thread, from way back in May. Do you have a link to the more recently active thread?

    Aha! Thank you. I had never scrolled to those depths before, so I assumed you meant the main page of the forum. Thanks again, that is helpful to know. Still, the search function on forums like this is for the birds.
