Remove bad stopwords in Text Preprocessing tool

Please remove all stopwords that help to identify the sentiment of a text. E.g. words like 'no' and 'not' are currently removed when you enable the 'remove stopwords' options. Here is an example:

People will probably use the option to remove stopwords without even thinking about issues like this and might remove relevant information from texts and then do a Sentiment Analysis afterwards and wonder why the results are bad.

 

Dear Alteryx, please find a better stopword list or remove some words from the list.
