Some phrases and words appear too often

Hi,

I don't know if other people have the same problem but some phrases appear just too often, and some words get "weak" too often. For example, in french every day I get the phrases:

"Il fait particulièrement aujourd'hui" "Ils se combattent" ... and many others.

Why do some words decay so fast? And what if we could block some phrases from appearing, phrases I see everyday?

In french I get the words "consiste", "combat", "particulièrement" all the time, every single day, while many other words never appear.

We are experimenting with an alternate word strength model that should fix this (we are still collecting/analyzing data). You currently have the older version, but this may go away soon.

Problem is some words become weak too quickly, while others never show up in practice
