Highlight your own custom Ai banned keyword List in Google Docs

Here’s the prompt

build me a regex for google doc so I can find (control + F) and highlight all of these words:

The output should be something similar to the output below. You may need to regenerate it a few times if it doesn’t work or just manually modify the one below.
