    Robanna,

    You are right admin matches administrator. It looks for the string anywhere in the email address and the comment.

    How hard would it be to add an ‘exact match’ option maybe by putting quotes around a word? I ask because the most common attack to the login page is for ‘admin’ and anyone worried about security does not have a user ‘admin’. Therefore we can assume that anyone trying to login with ‘admin’ is up to no good. But I do not want to other words admin is found within by accident.

    Sounds like a good idea. I will work on it.

    Maybe do something like the Better Moderation plugin does for comments.

    From the author’s site:

    “In the default moderation adding word would also match WordPress, but in Better Moderation if you use word^ it ignores any word which has letters after it, so WordPress would be acceptable, whilst Crossword (starts with other letters, but doesn’t end with any) and word-count (punctuation) would be caught in moderation.
    If you only wanted to match exactly “word” you can place the ^ at both the start and end ^word^.”
