I just inherited some content from a previous writer. I'd never seen
a situation where a writer seemed to be in love with a word,
especially when it is an inappropriate word (or at least an
inappropriate use of the word). The word? I'll let you pick it out
from the following sample (copied directly, and I'm not referring to
any misspelling)):

"...editor at the location of the typing
cursor whilst maintainging any..."

He used it as often as possible, to the point of being obvious.

Do you have anyone like that?
