Negative filtering: Excluding tags from search

Is it possible to filter out search results based on tags? For example, to do a search, but exclude the tag “trigger-warning”? We have a community that frequently discusses sensitive information that we don’t want to disallow, but some users may wish to avoid. (Writers.)

I’m thinking it is not (beyond the standard “muting” of a tag) but I wanted to confirm.

No, this is not currently possible.

This is now possible. To do it, add a - character before the tag you wish to exclude. For example, to search for all topics tagged with ‘foo’, but exclude topics that also have the ‘bar’ tag, search with tags:foo -tags:bar. To exclude topics tagged with ‘trigger-warning’, add -tags:trigger-warning to your search query.
