How to exclude newsgroups in search?

Post by sduck » Sat Dec 22, 2018 6:54 pm

If I do a search for a.b.sounds.mp3.prog, I also get results from alt.binaries.sounds.mp3.progressive-country. I'd like to exclude the progressive country please. If I add -alt.binaries.sounds.mp3.progressive-country to the search string then I get no results. Is there a way?

Hi,

Just add " -country" to the search phrase.
Like this "a.b.sounds.mp3.prog -country"
Every keyword with a minus in front will be excluded.
