Yes, you remember almost correctly! The problem is nested comments. The oft-quoted monster regex deals with all comments, but no nested comments. Nested comments are impossible without resorting to trickery (a regex that only Perl could do because it has embedded Perl code).

Lady_Aleena clean up after dinner finally.
[Discipulus]: uch! so we are twice lucky to have MCE..;=)
[marioroy]: Working a midnight graveyard shift, on the way home ran out of gas. just 2 minutes later somebody stops with a small tank of gas. It's wierd. There's always someone nearby for some reason.
[Lady_Aleena]: I was the one who stop[ed in the middle of a cold night to pick up a small family walking to a gas station. I got a few gallons of free gas for the round trip, and the grandmother said she'd pray for me.
[marioroy]: Folks do not know it, but MCE was ridiculously difficult. At Niagra Falls, heard a voice on enabling Grace while in the mist boat. That 10x performance is possible.
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena Angels on earth are real people. That's awesome.
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, what does MCE stand for in this instance? There are 3 pages of abbreviations to go through.
[Lady_Aleena]: ^ or Discipulus...
[marioroy]: Many-core Engine
[choroba]: MCE
