Adherence to DRY (“Don’t Repeat Yourself”) does not necessarily preclude repetition of code. In the endless struggle to refactor, the entropy we are trying to reduce is not in the raw text of our source code; it is in our business logic, which (in applications with little or poor testing) is often uncodified. Sometimes, refactoring can hamstring our code, and when done naïvely it can be a source of technical debt, rather than an antidote thereto.
If you use copy and paste while you’re coding, you’re probably committing a design error. Except when you're not.
