Comment (by aaroncampbell):

 I know the stopwords are filterable, but I think we should probably take
 an extremely conservative approach here.  Words being ignored can give
 unexpected results.  For example a search for "about Jaquith" would
 actually only search for "Jaquith" which will return all sorts of results
 but NOT the expected about page.

 Having gone through the list a few times, I think it would be fine to just
 remove about.  There might actually be others we could safely add to the
 list (am, were, do, has, he, she, etc), I'd just prefer to keep it as
 minimal as possible.
