Hi There,

I would like to search for users with EXACTLY:
in a custom user field. It would not include:
because it is not an exact match.

Is there a way to do this? I tried searching for "US" but that did not work.

Mmm Ok. Any way around this? I have a number of spam accounts and they are human created (I think), but they always use "USA" or "US" for their location. Any way to isolate these accounts so I can batch delete them?

It's not something you can explicitly isolate via the control panel. If you want to do something like that explicitly, it'd require searching via the database directly.

It may not help for historical records, but you can browse the user change logs in the control panel, which can allow you to identify spam accounts.
