I was wondering how to exclude tags on my searches, tried to find this option on the Advanced Super Ninja Search Options and failed.

But when I was about to create a feature-request for this, I found that it is actually possible

Please include it somewhere in the Advanced Super Ninja Search Options

So what we're missing is a callout for the ability to use the - (not) operator? –  Cody Gray May 24 '12 at 9:05

I've updated the comprehensive search help page to include this operator:

  • To exclude results from a tag, term or phrase, prefix it with - in your query: waffles -unicorns finds posts that mention tasty batter-based breakfasts without including mythical creatures, while [laurel] -[hardy] includes only posts pertaining to the first half of the classic comedy couple.
