Hi Mikkel,

If I understand correctly, you want to remove the email signature from this comment using automation.  The substringAfterLast() function has a note of its function:

Returns the text after the last occurrence of the given separator.

In your example, the string of that URL is repeated again at the bottom of the signature.  Hence, this is not returning what you expect here.  Perhaps you can adjust this string to be <>

As this should then match the line I think you are expecting.
