Why do they do it?

I have been in a number of writing sites and what's sad is the growing number of plagiarists at a very alarming rate.They have been responsible for the going down of most sites especially if the management is not able to contain them due to the fact that copying the already indexed work is wrong. And I wonder what we can call this;A friend of mine once told me that he once found his piece of poem,printed on a hard paper was being sold on the streets.It was his original work but he would question no one as it was a vendor selling a number of them and he thought his piece of work was copied from a certain site. No one is born a writer but what matters is your effort to become a better person tomorrow. Write your work with passion and it's only amazing what you can achieve.

There are some people who have low self esteem and they think they can't write. Out of desperation they go for plagiarism thinking they can get away from it.

But I think so long as you know what you want to achieve in the end,nothing is hard to get.Saying you can't is one thing but trying is another,all you need is being focused and what you though is impossible becomes definitely possible.

myLot has always been pretty fast to react to plagiarism here, thanks to the efforts of many members that have no tolerance for it whatsoever. We even get the occasional moron that will copy a discussion they see here and then repost it. Some people just don't have a clue, or think they can make a fast penny or two...

We all start from scratch and before we even realize it,we have already become better writers with experience to be proud of.
