we are not allowed to copy paste copyrighted materials into our posts in myLot without giving the url of the source. and if we want to do it, just to make sure that the copy paste is not towards the full materials, but only for a short introduction and to lead the others to read the original source. when I reached 500 posting number, what I have used in copy paste are only for article source's urls (because some websites' urls are very long and I couldn't do it when my number was below 500), and towards my offline prepared responses towards the others' discussions. I can't just get online the whole day and type each responses during the short online hours. but I want to make sure that all my friends would always get responses. so that's why I turn on the friend's new discussions notification, and then when I check my emails, I can directly make the responses offline first (either in Notepad or Word), and when I really have the chance to get online, I will copy paste offline prepared responses I have made, to the exact discussions' urls. so, it is not allowed to copy paste other people's posts, however, copy pasting your own offline prepared posts are allowed. and don't get me wrong, copy pasting is not allowed to create 'duplicate' posts or discussions. myLot will take such things as spamming and they wouldn't tolerate such kind of copy pasting either.

It is an item that allows you to write a message someplace else and then copy and paste it here. I use it some to do that and I use it to copy and paste part of an article if I read something elsewhere and want to share it here. I always make sure that I don't copy those kinds of things and use as my own words as that is a crime. You can't copy someone elses' post and use it again.
