And I noticed very quickly that in most cases, the sample text was NOT my words, but someone else's.
In most cases this seems to be attributing whatever text is quoted by me to me. However, there is one message on page one that quoted Harisenbon that was attributed correctly. Everything else on page one that references a post where I quoted text, is quoting the quoted text, not my response.
This is a picture with the erroneous posts marked.
Actually, after all that effort, I still can't find the thread, I guess it was deleted by Mods.

Possibly a better solution would be to have the PHPBB developers add some code to strip out any quotes before creating the sample search text... but I'm guessing that the search text for those user post listings itself is taken from the basic search text which includes all the text in a post... so modifying this behavior would probably have negative performance ramifications etc (adding a redundant search index to the db, or adding additional parsing code to search results).
It's entirely possible that the fix would not be very complex... I just don't have the time or energy to really dig into it further right now, and it doesn't actually break anything... it just looks weird on the search results page.
Just a quirk that we work around for now I guess.
