Membership Regex Help--need to allow base

Hi,

I am attempting to block all user profiles from members below a certain level. However, I'd like users to be able to view their own profile.

I have the expression in negative rules, http://wherestheaudition.com/profile/(*), however because of the closed link (wherestheaudition.com/profile/), checking (wherestheaudition.com/profile works against the rule so that a user would be able to see the page, but (wherestheaudition.com/profile/), which is what renders when someone actually clicks, sends them immediately to my protected content page.

Please help!
