Please add the ability to filter [Closed] questions out of my results.

When searching for questions, is there a way to avoid all those marked [closed] at the end? I know how to find questions with "truly" 0 answers (answers:0).

Skipping closed questions would be nice in search results.

Add closed:0 to your search.

For example, to search for all the truly unanswered questions I use:

http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=closed:0%20hasaccepted:0%20answers:0%20[c%23]&tab=newest

Closed as duplicate are useful in searches as they provide different keywords to search for
