Can I search for a specific user name where other users forget to put a @ character in front of it, but only in superuser comments?

Maybe via data.stackexchange.com since it provides a comment property?

I thought of a query similar to this pseudocode:

select * questions where comment_text = "* nixda*"

(Searching for names in questions/answers does work without problems.)

I created this query which will search through all comments for a username anywhere in the text, but without the @reply.

Just enter the desired username in the parameter box & you're good to go.

thanks Tim for the nudge!
