[pt] New technique creating antipatterns "(2-JUL-2020+)"

@dnaber @jaumeortola


Starting today, 2-JUL-2020, I am using a new technique for the antipatterns to fix false positives:

  1. Do a check against 200 000 sentences (“before.txt”);
  2. Do another check just by placing the false positive tokens in the antipattern (“after.txt”);
  3. Place the exceptions found in the previous step and do another check.

I will do a diff using TortoiseSVN to validate the results.

This technique will remove more false positives than before because sometimes I would spend hours trying to fix false positives and the fix would only solve very little matches (wasting hours just to fix three or four false positives in some cases).

Good, brute force approach.
