Profiles: Notifications should have an option to match whole words only

Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

One of ru_RU forum administrators has a notification for yui (her WP.org display name and Slack username).

She's getting unrelated notifications for strings like wp-content/plugins/widget-options/assets/css/jqueryui.

There should be an option to match whole words only to avoid irrelevant matches.

Ideally, I think this should be extended to all usernames should be whole-word only. I don't want to get notifications for "bottom" or something like that either.

Yes please, I currently get notifications for user netweb logic (Without the space) and I'd rather not

Another use case is the #polyglots team suggests notification subscriptions to your locale, e.g #pt-br for Portuguese (Brazil), though subscribers to #pt for Portuguese (Portugal) would receive both locales notifications.

And subscribers to #fr for French (France) currently get notifications for things like #front-page :)

Is there a chance that this will be corrected in the near future? Or will the source code of notifications be opened?

I'm getting 2/3 false notifications for "Yui", not just JqueryUi but random strings and even other usernames like

Hi @tzyyyuin

matching should be done versus exact string, otherwise such notifications are close to useless

This ticket was mentioned in Slack in #polyglots by yui. View the logs.
