As many ppl as there are on here it would be very likely to have the same topics going by one or more people. Just try to make yours ismore interesting and invite your friends to respond if your looking for more responses. I think I would just not sweat the small stuff.

Well I will feel pissed and annoyed ofcourse. But first think of what you posted and if it's a common topic, so maybe other people would have thought of that discussion too. But if the words of your discussions are the same as the one who copied, I think you should report it to the admin so maybe they could do something about it. But now I just ignore it, I just don't have time to argue and quarrel with people who doesn't have originality and are just copying others materials.

I would not mind at all if the discussion I made has been copied, after all I think the possibility of a same discussion occurring more than twice is very high here on mylot. There are so many user and even though we came from different countries we still share the same struggle in our life. we all face the same problems everyday and we all eat, drink, take a bath, watch TV. In short we go through the same cycle almost everyday and I think almost everyone here take their inspiration to make topic out of their daily lives. But if in any case that a discussion you made and the one who copied it is almost the same in all sense, as almost every words were copied, well I think you have to confront the user but of course it is very easy to deny, but then again, the best way is to IGNORE it and don't post a response on it.

Well, every person have the same way of thinking but the deliberation of the words is not exactly the same and if Mylot will catch them copied the discussion then let them delete it but I guess you cannot blamed them because most of us are almost the same way of life cycle because there will be an option also here in MyLot that you think nobody still post the discussion and then when you post it you recognize the file of other people's discussion and it is almost the same as yours so i think it would happened sometimes......

I would really feel bad. I mean, I thought of that question and someone would just copy it? But, we should not judge a book by its cover. What I am trying to say is maybe the other person also thought of the same thing, of course we can never know, but everything's possible.

we could not do anything. that person should understand, what he/she is doing. that person may be enjoying imitating/copying things faster than creative.

Honestly, i don't mind other members copying my threads if ever. It is their responsibility not mine. If they will be sanction for that, it is because they did something wrong. If they loose earning because of that, it is their own makings. I have a lot of things to do and not just mind these people.

In the past I had a discussion about my child started to go to the kindergarten. Later I saw the same from someone. This Mylotter copied my discussion. I felt a little bit angry, but finally I didn't do anything to it. I didn't report to Mylot about it. I don't want to waste my time for people like that. I love China

as there are 144,470 people mylottin here we are bound to come up with similar topics so forget it and mind your own business. After all there are just so many topicsand some of us are bound to poick the same topic.but I have seen discussions on various aspects of a topic and thats not breaking any rules at all.

Hey there, I wouldn;t feel anything if they don't do it repeated ly because maybe it is just a coincidence that they are wondering of the same thing. But if it happens a lot of times, then I would probably be pissed off. ^^

maybe the discussion has been copied because the writer cant think of anything else or he/she thought the same topics that you had either way, if you know yours is the original,there is nothing to worry about, but if it is bothering you, you can private message the writer and tell her/him that you got the same topic, and maybe you can agree if he/she will delete it or not.

i hate it!! i just ignore it and dont respond.. maybe it was an accident? i know i had like 1 that before i knew how to search (and my search work) i had made a discussion that was on the same topic as the other person but it was all in my wording obviously since i thought it was the only one and i had wrote it.. but if its the same person over and over again i think i would turn them in.. who knows who else they are doing it to!! not to mention they are earning money off your intelligence

I would get quite annoyed if my discussion was copied by another person especially if it was copied and pasted. That has already happened to me twice since I joined myLot and I wasn't aware of it until some of my friends drew my attention to it. We all reported it to myLot and the appropriate action was taken against the person who copied and pasted. However, with so many members and so many discussions I am sure that there are bound to be a lot of similar discussions and I don't mind that as long as they are not copied and pasted.

I don't like it when someone copies the thread but how can you prove that unless it is copied word for word? It makes me feel red but it will pass quickly. Might be I have "copied" other people's ideas without knowing. So I just take it in my stride and continue posting.

Maybe it's only a coincidence when there's similar to your discussions. I experienced that one of my discussion have a similarity to the new discussions. I'm not bothered of it. If ever someone copy it, im sure they going to rewrite or repharse it so that it's not obvious that they copy it for the sake of new post and additional to the points. Me, i just ignore it.Sometimes i replied to that discussions wich is similar to mine lolz. It annoying but you have nothing to do with it, even personal at school cheating and copying is always present.
