As of July 2015, at least there is no reliable way to use a NOT operator. At least on Amazon.de searching for hard drive -usb will reduce the number of USB drives, but already the last result on the first page contained "USB" in the title. Searching for tischventilator -usb (German for table fan) on the other hand pushes usb devices even more to the top ...

For your example, I think your best bet is to search for all labels except [bug]; or create a new label "non-bug". :) You can of course contact github and put this "filter-out" feature in their ...

I've attached a screenshot which includes fields both for Words and for People where you can specify the word(s) and the account(s) you want to search through. You can also see the related question: How do I search within someone'...

It seems you also asked this at the Wikipedia Help Desk (which, in my opinion, is really a better resource for Wikipedia questions). The answer you got, which seems to suit your needs, was: Over at dumps.wikimedia.org is a link to a compressed "all-titles.gz" file containing the names of all pages at Commons. That would take an hour or two to download at ...

I couldn't get is:reminder -is:done to work. So I used this, and it did what I wanted (all reminders not done, including reminders that aren't related to email): is:reminder is:pinned It renders this link, which you could bookmark or whatever: inbox.google.com/search/is%3Areminder%20is%3Apinned?pli=1
