Due to a problem encountered here, I would like to request that search results are not filtered based on our ignored tag list.
Currently the filtering aids some benefit in removing questions that may not be relevant to what we're looking for, so if I search
[sql] and have
[c#] filtered, all questions dealing with
[sql] for C# would be removed for me. However I argue that being able to use more specific searches would benefit users more in the general case. If I wanted to find sql dealing only with php, I could search
[php] and get the desired results.
For these reasons searches should be exempt from active filtering. If I need to search something that is usually against my interests, I may not be able to find and it. It may never be apparent that it is being filtered out, which then leads me to the assumption that it simply does not exist. The current implementation can also lead to the creation of duplicates.
