The option to exclude specific words when searching - for example "The", "And", etc. - would this be an useful feature?

@andmej

Why exactly would you want to exclude certain words from the search?

@norfali

This "issue" was raised by a client actually:

  • The Github
  • The Github Cafe
  • The Github Coffee Co
  • Therefore Foo

She felt that given a large list of data, typing a common word like "the" or "and", the list is not filtered enough for her.

Funny how she thinks. Since the list is not filtered enough for her, she wants to filter less and have more results in it!

I'm -1 for this change. I don't see the value in it.

@norfali

Indeed! As for myself, I am a bit on the fence but your call what you would like to do with this feature. :o)

@MsDacia

Is this feature added somewhere? Particularly, I would like to exclude the placeholder text if it is the default option for search.

@pfiller

I think this feature is probably not something I'd want to see added to Chosen. If I'm searching with "the" I probably want it to match things with "the" in it. I'd let some user testing prove me wrong, though :)
