Not sure what you mean by "can't easily scroll through said new posts". What exactly is it that you're trying to do which is running afoul of the search timeout?
I only hit it once or twice by accident; it hasn't been affecting my normal browsing of the forums to any real extent.
Well when I'm sitting here at work, I have the 'TR forums' link on my toolbar point to the newposts page. So I follow that, read a particular thread, then click on the link to get back to the list of threads. My reading rarely takes 30 seconds unless it's the first time I've looked in a particular session or I'm replying. Especially after I've read all the interesting threads and so keep checking the newposts to read the comments people have left since I last read it. Reading a new comment only takes a few seconds, but then I have to wait another 27 to go back to the newposts page, thus delaying my ability to go to a different thread.
I guess I'll just have to change my approach and open all links as tabs so that I don't have to go back to the newposts page as often. *sigh*
