While testing regular expressions, I tried to change a test existing on CommentContext.spec.tsx to include consecutive banned words, line breaks, word in the beginning and end of the line. Like in the image below:


However, when running this test, I found that once I put consecutive banned words, the HTML marking would be placed mistakenly in non-banned words in that comment, like in blank spaces. Please note the Received in red in the image below. Besides, as you can see, banned words are not marked as banned:


I was trying to understand the problem, and I ended up coding a solution. I'm opening a PR for this solution, please check if it makes sense for you.

Expected behavior:
When typing two consecutive words that are banned in a comment, it'll mark these banned words correctly in moderation section.

Actual behavior:
Consecutive banned words are not marked properly in moderation section.
