When reviewing quickly-written drafts of articles
or papers, one thing I find myself doing is to run
into examples of frequent repeats of the same words
and change the text to remove this 'ugly' feature.

Thus we may conclude that (my) draft papers are
examples of random text...

I need to sit down and think about this one ...:-)
