I just tried getting an RSS feed from the site and didn't get one (I just
got the normal page)--I'm guessing you disabled RSS?  Normally the 
edit password shouldn't make a difference.  

Also, note that pmwiki-1.0.14 made a couple of fixes to rss, so maybe
upgrading would help.

If you're wanting to do exactly what it says -- i.e., display all pages
that do not have either "PmWiki" or "Profiles" in the text, then it's
just  (:searchresults -"PmWiki" -"Profiles" :).

But if you're wanting to display all pages that are not in the PmWiki
or Profiles groups, you'll probably want to create a custom search list:
In config.php:

    $SearchPatterns['nopp'][] = '!^(PmWiki|Profiles)\.!';

Then in the markup, use one of (:pagelist list=nopp:) or 
(:searchlist list=nopp:).

If you're wanting this to be the default for all searches/page listings, 
use 'default' instead of 'nopp':

    $SearchPatterns['default'][] = '!^(PmWiki|Profiles)\.!';

This is somewhat described at 
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/SearchResults, although the description
could probably use some improvements.
