Data Explorer - People that use their name in their post.
(Well, matches rob inside a word, but that's just a matter of correcting the regular expression; it's the idea that counts...)

Can't we warn people when they try to include their name in their post near the end?

Some thoughts:

  1. Split the post in 2 or 4 and only check the last part.

  2. Along his name, check for common words With kind regards-like sentences and words.

  3. Based on statistics, see whether we need a warning or we could automatize this.
