I found several accepted answers for this question, but still have difficulties:

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

  2. Avoiding "closed" questions in a search

From both answers I don't understand, what should I do to avoid closed questions by default, so I won't need to insert closed:0 every time manually.

Usually I work with the site like this:

  1. Open http://stackoverflow.com
  2. click php tag, and this page is opened: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/php

Is is possible to enter in some filter in my profile, that I don't want to get closed questions in any listing by default?

2-nd subquestion

Is it possible to filter the questions, having low score: <= -4 for example? I don't want to see them.

Yeah, both of those are supported:

Pick a filter that works for you, and bookmark it. Enjoy!

    Maybe, in the future, it would be possible to setup these filters in the profile, so they are applied by default.

  • To frighten your enemies, I would recommend entering into a different realm altogether where only the laws of SQL apply.
