If I just wrote a post on nanogoobers, it then occurs to me that someone may have written about it already in some other thread. A2K is a mighty big place.
So I search for the word "nanogoobers" high and low, but there are so many threads and I don't want any of *my* posts to be shown in the results.
Can this be done? Is this conceivable?
Can a poor user search for a word and indicate "not this author"?
PS -- "nanogoobers" is not an actual word, but a theoretical word used for demonstration purposes only. You are hereby advised to avoid using the word at formal occassions or at home unless supervised by a child, as the word is currently under construction and may fail in its intended purpose. Caveat lumptor!
With the current code that can't be done.
You sure nanoboogers isn't a word. Been using it since childhood.
Goobers, sir. Nanogoobers.
A booger, while similar in form and function, is far too immature to articulate in the presence of those who posture as adults.
Better to eat ones words than choke on them, and a goober is fairly more delectable to my antiquated sensibilities. (Although I have been known to wrench one or two loose in my day).

You might check out a different forum, snoop. We got a little playful here, but Forum Help gets a pretty high priority from administration.
Welcome to a2k, by the way
From the Forum Search page
You can use AND to define words which must be in the results, OR to define words which may be in the result and NOT to define words which should not be in the result. Use * as a wildcard for partial matches
Would it not work if you were to issue a search definition as nanogoobers NOT Codeberg
That will remove Codeborg from the keuword query but not the author query.
