9% Ipsum

Turnitin Yesterday I needed some dummy Turnitin reports, so I bunged 200 words of Lorem ipsum through Turnitin - and got a 9% match.

I'd been assuming that plenty of lorem ipsum had been run through Turnitin previously and so the match would be higher than 9% - but maybe not?
At any rate, I suspect that this is telling us something interesting about the structure of the underlying Turnitin database. However, it will be for smarter statistical minds than mine to figure out exactly what that is....
