In their paper "Handling Churn in a DHT", the authors use the following sentence:
For each event we select a node to die uniformly at random[...]
Do you think this sentence is unprecise? Or is it even grammatically wrong? I argued with a friend wether someone could misinterpret this sentence (e.g. that nodes are dying uniformly) or if the sentence is as precise as needed.
An alternate form could be
For each event we randomly uniformly select a node to die [...]
We believe the syntax of this sentence to be correct and that it is more precise than the first version, but IMHO it lacks readability.
Is one of the forms above to be preferred over the other, or would you say that both aren't optimal and that there are better ways?
