Aye, that would indeed be nice!
As an aside, I search Google with a quick search bookmarklet in Firefox,
so I set that up to filter out a couple of annoying sites (including
ExpertsExchange.com (or, as I generally read it, ExpertSexchange.com).
I have the keyword set to "google" so I can just type "google whatever"
in the address bar, and set the address for the bookmark to:
(repeating the -site:... for each other site you want blocked)
Therefore, -site:experts-exchange.com gets added to each search I do,
leaving out results from there.
Might be of use to someone.
