I haven't followed this thread.  Someone else has probably already suggested
this, but in case they haven't, it's fairly easy to define your own function
that does what you want:

def is_in(search, search_for):
  """Return bool indicating whether search_for is in search."""
  return search.find(search_for) >= 0

subject = "i like spam, i do."
x = "spam"
y = "ham"

print is_in(subject, x)
print is_in(subject, y)

// m
