Suppose, hypothetically, there is a person on this site who asks many questions every day. I would like a way to view new questions, but filter out particular posters so it's a bit more readable. Is this possible?

  • You can search for user:{user_id} to find posts by a specific user. I would've thought adding a - before it would invert that (like how every search tool works), but apparently that doesn't work.

This feature has been discussed for as long as over 14 years.

The long and short story of it is that since SE is a content-driven and not a social site, this will probably not be possible. Ever.

There are scripts out there to make it happen anyway, though.

    @IdiosyncraticSoul I agree, that's why I started to close questions right away.
