Title: How can use this to disallow repeats in a string?

Comment:
This is great, but I'm looking for a way to add an additional condition to one of the password regex's whereby I want to disallow more than 2 consecutive instances of any characters within the string. I'm already requiring several matches (at least one each number,lowercase and uppercase) and one non-match (no spaces allowed) using regexp_id 157.
