I have noticed that I can't copy and paste from myLot anymore. There is something I suspect might be plagiarism. Usually, I copy and paste the first sentence into Google and see what comes up. Usually, it is from Wikipedia. Today, I tried and got the can't do it symbol. I also tried to copy and paste a website someone mentioned and that did not work either. Is this a new policy?

It has to be something on your end. I can copy text from myLot without any issues on multiple browsers.

I can't imagine why I can't. I never copy unless I think something is plagiarized or if I want to look up something someone mentioned.

I can still copy and paste. Maybe is it intended just for you?

I just tried it and it worked. Don't know what happened there. I cleaned my computer with a program yesterday and now a lot of things are wacky. They even took off my themes and made the lock screen and the desktop black. Spent half of last night trying to fix things.

@akalinus Some cleaners are cleaning too much inside the Windows registry... I wish you to manage to fix everything.

@topffer Thanks, it was Fix Me Stick. After I ran it, I did not have much left. I hope I did not put back anything that is a threat. It was the first time I ever ran it so I might have goofed up somewhere.

I do the same thing to check random sentences from one's post. I just tried it now, I could still do it.

I just tried it. I suspected someone of plagiarizing something. I found something similar but not the same thing, so yay, it is okay, happy ending.

@akalinus It is something I do often, there are so many plagiarists out there.

@BelleStarr Some of them just don't know any better. I think the rules should explain what plagiarism is so that people from other places understand it. Of course, they should just know it is not okay, but you never know these days.

@akalinus I mostly see it other places than here and people have stolen my work and photos and they know what they are doing.

I am guessing some things in the internet could not be copy/pasted.

It is working for others. So again there must be an error on your end. Try again and see tomorrow. It may work.

I tried Fix Me Stick. It did not like any of my settings and took them all off. I had to spend hours fixing things after that. My computer did run better after that, though. Fix Me probably removed some garbage along with the settings.
