I'm interested in Silverlight but not Windows Phone,

When I click on my favorite tag "Silverlight" I see dozens of Windows Phone tagged questions. Before Windows Phone revolution I could easily find and answer questions for my area of interest.

Is there a way of querying c#+silverlight but not windows-phone

Have you tried putting [windows-phone] on your ignored list? – Mysticial Mar 27 '13 at 12:26
In fact I didn't think it :D But I've tried just now. It still shows questions but blurred. – Davut Gürbüz Mar 27 '13 at 12:29
seems better for me! – Davut Gürbüz Mar 27 '13 at 12:30
Go to Preferences and select Hide Ignored Tags – David Robinson Mar 27 '13 at 12:30

If ignored tags isn't cutting it for you, you could try this search term:

[silverlight] -[windows-phone] -[windows-phone-7] -[windows-phone-8] -"Windows Phone"

Demo (53, 848)

Or for a simpler, but less accurate one, you could just use:

[silverlight] -"Windows Phone"

Demo (59, 462)
