Anyone know of a way to exclude particular domains (e.g. amazon.com) from the result in DuckDuckGo searches?

Search term syntax is fine if that's the best way to do it, but if anyone knows of a setting to make the exclusion persistent, that would be preferred.

@lrhodes My solution would be to write a greasmonkey script that removes the result container if it contains an amazon url. But there is probably a better way.

@peregrine @lrhodes I think this is the better way too, greasemonkey or a custom rule for your adblocker. Bing (which powers duckduckgo) has a commercial relationship with amazon and will probably always find a way to sneak a few amazon URLs into your search results if not explicitly filtered

@FiXato It does. I was hoping to figure out a way to exclude it without having to input the additional parameter each time.

@lrhodes @FiXato you can probably modify your browser search engine settings to add the parameters for you if you search from the URL bar.
