I always think that original tex code (or any code in fact) is a bit private, mostly because I usually don’t want to expose my stupidity and inefficiency in coding. For example, I wouldn’t want anyone to see my “\newcommand{\w}{\sigma}” under any circumstance. (Now you are seeing it only because I didn’t write it—I got it in a template from someone else who’s kind enough to share their tex files.)

@mwt true, so I get quite conscious with my preambles when it comes to submissions. Mostly when I take my own notes I get sloppy and I feel weird sharing them…

@xp_eileen_maths I also tend to not delete things. Instead, I comment them out. So there are many lines of distracting incorrect statements that I have to remove before sending.
