What is the deal with these members that copy and paste other's answers?

I don't know about anyone else, but my answers are real. I take the time to honestly say what I'm feeling. Why are they allowed to get away with this?

Oh, I know, it irritates me so much! I saw someone copy and paste my answer twice in the same discussion. I give negative ratings, I think you can report them by hitting the! also, something to keep in mind.

I totally agree with you on that. I, too, always respond with a different response.

Could you imagine how bored we would all be if all we did was copy & paste all the time? I wouldn't be sticking around, I know that! Thanks for the response.

Oh I know. It's obvious that they just add anything, so as not to leave it blank.

I just became a member yesterday and I saw something about people copying and pasting. Didn't really think anything about it until it happened to me! LOL Then I got mad!! Just hoping that something will be done to prevent this. Thanks!

Happy Halloween!
I'm with you dollbaby. I am constantly seeing the same people copying and pasting answers and everytime I see that I give them a negative rating. I don't think that these people realize that they are being rated and their earnings are being affected accordingly. They probably just think that they are earning big by possting so much..

I think you're right about that. Once members start realizing that these people are doing this, maybe it will make more of an impact on their ratings. I'll definately do my part! Thanks!

Someone did that to one of my responders on a discussion I have.. That is so unfair and I gave the person a negative rating for that too.

Unfortunatly this is something that could only be rectified by doing a search and going through each thread and comparing the responses against each other, which would need a moderator to do the above job, personally what I would do is create a name and shame list of people who have copied and pasted other peoples responses, as it just shows that the person who has copied and pasted has no ingenuity.

I know it would be hard for someone to moderate. I guess we as members have to do our part. Thanks for responding!

I believe their brains have been rendered useless by the extreme inanity of mylot to the extent that they are incapable of initiating new thought processes.

The person who copied my message had posted another message: Is it wrong that I'm copying other people's messages? Or something like that. He figures it just for the money, so no harm done. Whatever. Thanks for the response, I'm in agreement!

I also answer each one personally. I guess they will cheat at everything if they cheat on this.

This happened to me, and it made me so mad! I guess all we can do is give them a negative rating - if we catch them. I really wich that myLot had something in place to search for this and ban people who practice this.

Chances are they won't be able to get away with it forever. Just keep doing the right thing yourself, you never can account for what other people choose to do in life. But as long as you know you are in the right, to heck with 'em. Right?:)
