How can we improve Application Insights?

"Not" filters in Application Insights

The application insights filtering is currently inclusive and not exclusive. I would like to setup a filter where all information about a filter is included EXCEPT a selected filter value.

For example, it is not possible to exclude metrics from ONLY Internet Explorer 8.0. I could select every filter except Internet Explorer 8.0, but then I will not see other new browser versions in the future as traffic comes from them.

        Is this tracked as a bug somewhere? When using the API it seems that it accepts a filter like `not contains(operation/name, 'whatever')` but doesn't actually do the filtering. This can be very misleading, in particular if the field you are filtering in is not a dimension/segment being displayed.
