This is Microsoft's new AutoRegret feature. It has a sophisticated text-
parsing engine that works on-the-fly to delete sentences that you'd
eventually have wished you hadn't written.

Unfortunately there was a bug in the first release that's been causing
everyone's dud text to appear in my draft manuals. Let me know what
you're missing, Alex, and if I find anything I'll send it on.
