how do I exclude specific users from the assignee field in an advanced search?

I am trying to exclude specific users as part of an advanced search filter by using the following;

 assignee != "<user name>"

But that user keeps appearing in the resulting search - as do all the others I have tried to exclude.

Alternatively, I have tried to use

assignee = "unassigned"

Again, this seems to have no affect as all user keep appearing tin the resulting search.

Try to use
assignee in membersOf(jira-users) AND assignee not in (username1, username2)

or just
assignee not in (username1, username2)
