Default Avoid word repetition

I have come up with an idea. Try and write a sentence that only uses words people haven't used before. It won't take long for this to become very hard.

Consider your suggestion seconded, but what about duplication within responses?

Illegal answers currently I'm afraid. Rules may loosen later.

Someone will have to keep a sorted list of all the words used and check all new posts for duplicates. Should turn into a full-time job in no time.
BTW, can a sentence have repeated words?
