email domain filter "*." bug

If I enter the string "*.ru" (instead of ".ru") in the email domain filter, it filters out any email addresses with the string "ru" anywhere in them, eg "nevillekrudd@gmail.com".

The error message says "You may not register with, post as a guest or change your email address to one from the domain @*.ru"

The email domain filter simply doesn't take wildcards (which should be in the instructions but isn't) so when the program sees the *.ru  the star and dot get stripped off at some point so it starts looking for the string 'ru'.

I don't think this is a bug but poor instructions.
