Search Code Filter

This is not a feature that I would find very interesting on my own forum, but it would sure be helpful here. It would be nice if there was an option to allow the user to ignore everything written inside code tags when searching. You can hardly look up any question about something in the forum code without seeing a million copies of every single time anyone posted up a code block that incidentally included what you were interested in. I know that there are probably a few copies of everything that aren't in code blocks and that those would still clutter up the search results, but any starting point to help cut through the chaff here would be helpful.

This is a *massive* feature to implement. Complete redesign of how all the search system works. Not going to happen in 2.0 or 2.1.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.
