Excluding Usenet option
It would be nice to be able to set in your site options that you are not interested in the usenet posts, so that when you search for new post it doesn't turn up instances where someone cross-posted to several different newsgroups.

I concur. I'd also like to see the 'last reply by' as a link to the last post. I believe someone else wanted this too but it must've been missed.

I agree, it is especially annoying when you search for a general phrase e.g. 'FAQ' and you want to be AO specific. Also, including usenet means that you get hundreds if not thousands more results, making it very difficult to find what you want.
Perhaps a better option would be to choose whether to search usenet, AO, or both?

It would also be useful to be able to search specific forums (selecting only the ones you are interested in via checkboxes), or even specific threads (although this may be taking it a bit far!).

As far as I am concerned, you can remove usenet completely. There are plenty of other ways to view usenet groups. Keep this site to just the AO forums.
