    Hello,

    When creating a new record for blocking usernames, if I put "%aaa%", will that prevent people from putting something like "hhhjjjjaaakkkkllll" or "jsoodudnkdklaaa", etc?

    I'm trying to prevent spam accounts as much as possible, so I would like to have records like that for each letter of the alphabet, but I want to make sure that what I am doing will work first

    Thank you
