It seems that these days you can copy and paste and get paid. Well at least that is how it seems to work for plagiarizers. Plagiarizers irritate me because I find them to be so lazy and cheat us out of hard earned money. I happen to come a cross someone on here who is new to the site. I decided to read their post. As I read it I happened to realized that I had already read it. So decided to run it through a plagiarizer checker. When it finished scanning it the checker said it was plagiarized. It didn't surprise me because the place I remember seeing that post was on a site that is now closed. I don't remember who wrote it originally it could have been them but very unlikely. If it is self plagiarism it still doesn't make much difference because you aren't allowed to post things here that you have posted elsewhere. I flagged the post and then went through the rest. Some of them were plagiarized I didn't even check them all because the more I found the more angry it made me. I left a comment on the post telling then that their post was plagiarized and I hope as others read it see my comment and not help them by continuing to interact with them.

Actually, you are allowed to post things here that may have been on Bubblews before. What you can't do is post discussions that still exist somewhere else on the Internet.

I am not big on republishing my own work for payment just to avoid the problem unless I am republishing it on my blog for nonpayment.

It really does bother me too, when others will take words or sentences from other discussions, and make thenm thre own, when they didn't even make their own discussion. I could never do that, as I feel that the ones that wrote them, it iheirs, and I have now right to them. Some in here have had their discussions copied before, and that is a rotten shame. It takes thought to make a discussion, and I won't post anything until I have thought long and hard about what I want to say. Most of the discussions I have written, have been about me, so at least others cant copy me, at least I hope not anyway.

Lol you would think that but I have seen some people who will take someone's post about their life experience and just change a few words and resubmit it as their own lol I think well jeez you don't even have your own personal life experiences how sad.

@lokisdad My life is boring, and why anyone would want to copy mine would be something I would wonder about, that is for sure. I feel that it is best to make discussons aboout my life, that way, it would be harder to copy.

@rosekiss This is true I feel the same way my life is uneventful but i think when someone copies it they are thinking about just that copying and they also check and see if it got a lot of responses if it did they think great they will get the same but what hey don't realize is that they get responses because of the interaction and bond they have built over time with the followers.I once saw a plagiarized post where they copied the entire post and forgot to remove the original posters name hahaha caught by their own laziness.
