Sorry, would you mind sharing the regex used to collect this?

No joke intended.

    :P The only part of the recipe that is non-trivial (trivial = loading a list of user nodes on the site, copying the HTML and parsing it into node ids and fetching the ids into ?node_id={id};displaytype=xml with LWP::whatever, with a generous sleep between request to not tax the site, and pulling content from those…) is Regexp::Common::profanity + a little magic to check for elided spellings with as******s. Perl makes this stuff rather easy. I’m super grateful for it and its community every day.

      Really cool! Did not know about that module. Thanks!
