Exact search would be nice to have, even as a filter, like exact:word.
Reasoning: Scenario 1 - I'm proofreading a novel, or website, or game text, or whatever. Submissions on a specific discord server (a couple of thousand so far). I find a misspelled common word. I'd like to check if it was already submitted: I can't, because due to approximate results thrown out, I literally get hundreds of results. All the other filters are useless in this case.
Scenario 2 - I'm moderating a server. I want to search the chat log for some words that we don't tolerate on the server. Some words throw out approximate results, again potentially thousands of them. Current filters useless again.
I'm sure there are other uses for this too. I'd also like to point out, that I'm not asking for partial vs exact word recognition, like 'dog' being found in 'doge', I'm talking about approximate vs exact word, like 'hers' found for 'heroes'.
If you'd like to see this implemented sooner rather than later, link the post in your discord groups, so others can come here and drop an upvote too - they'll only take it seriously if it reaches a few thousand votes.
