Pending Do not HL-On List

I have a short and common name for a username (Andrew). There are some usernames that also contain Andrew as a compound name. If there's a space in a user's name and people tab talk to them, I also get highlighted. I'd like to be HL'd on Andrew but not if it's an Andrew that's part of someone else's username.

I'm requesting a feature to create and modify a list to not be HL'd on. I'd like this list to be used in a way such that every time, there's a match of my highlight list, I only get HL'd if there is an instance of a string that matches an entry on my highlight list that doesn't match an entry on this Dont-HL list.

A use case that I'd considered and would like to maintain is being on a playerlist. If user Andrew X and I are both playing and mentioned in the same playerlist, I should be HL'd on that.

I think you can do this already using regex, this thread explains it if you're unfamiliar. Just need to set up your hl list correctly ig.

this probably might sound dumb, but i would recommend either alting with a simple username but you tell people to call you by that or just cutting your username more. example: andre or andr just for less confusion

With the introduction of roomhighlights, a potential use for this that can't be solved with regex is if you want to highlight on something in all rooms but one (example: imagine highlighting on a fruit but not wanting to get highlighted by it in The Cafe)
