Spotlight has finally annoyed me enough times to solicit the forum here for an answer. As a coder, I often use spotlight to look for source files, and spotlight is very good at showing me source files that aren't mine and that i'll never use. I'd love to ignore them, but I can't. Here's how you can repeat it: 1. Spotlight for "ldap" 2. Observe the many include files it find. Cmd-click one to open it in the finder and notice it's in /usr/include. 3. Attempt to add /usr/include to the Spotlight privacy thing and observe that you can't. Why can't I ignore /usr/include? It's a hidden directory - shouldn't it be ignore by default anyways?
