Even if you have a few callsites and just copy-paste the same function it can be readable - I've heard that called un-cooked spaghetti code. Everything is still nicely layed out and can be refactored without too much trouble if you so chose. The problem starts with cooked spaghetti code where everything is all mangled up and references are all over the place.

I don't know if I'm buying it or not but I like this cooked/uncooked spaghetti code distinction
