Hello there,

There is no stemming available for search (which is the {ducking} -> {duck} conversion). We've talked internally about the profanity issue before so it's something we're aware of. We'll announce something here once we have a plan.

I have a few questions:

I am using API to publish my search query onto a web page. Because the
web site is a public site, I don't want profanity. I found that I can
eliminate certain words with the "-"... but I also found that my API
stops working if I have too many queries... is there a simple query
that will block variations of a word. For example:

-duck (I want to block "duck")

is there something I can type (for example -{duck}) that blocks:
ducker, ducking, duckeroo, unduckingbelieveable etc?
