in thread regular expression: match multiple newlines

Good point! However, \n\s*\n would replace \n\x20\n --a space surrounded by two newlines--which is not two consecutive newlines, thus the prior \n{2,} suggestion.

Edit: My apologies. Didn't notice the the OP's mentioning the possibility of other whitespace between the newlines.
