Copying and Pasting Other Peoples Answers

I started a discussion yesterday on Secret Santas that received several replies. Two of those replies were direct copy and pastes from other users who had posted before they did. Is this something that I should be reporting to the Mylot staff. I feel bad for the people who took the time to give thoughtful and lengthy answers only to have them copied. In my opinion this is cheating. What do you think? Should I be repoting this?

So they plagarized just to make a few measly pennies, huh? That's pathetic. I think it's funny how people are so excited about making $5 here on myLot. You'd think they won the lottery or something.

Agreed! In fact you were one of the people who replied that this person ripped-off. If you come across that discussion you'll see it.

I looked through the thread and did not see it, so maybe MyLot removed it already?

I'm not certain. I'll have to go back and check. Hopefully they removed it.

Hmmm that is so lame. Because when you make fun in here and place normal comments u will like it. Then when u "cheat" and copy/paste other replys. Maybe they don't know what to answer and do that so they have a answer

If someone does not have an answer than I think they shouldn't respond. It's not fair for someone to type out their thoughts only to have them stolen by someone else. Thank you for your reply and sharing your own ideas on this matter.

There was an alert about this very thing. Definitely report them, it's against mylot rules. People who copy and paste other replies will be suspended. And they certainly deserve it! It's scamming the system. I've had my replies copied and pasted and it really, really bugs me.

definitely. it's unfair and rude to copy-paste other people's posts. some of my discussions, especially the ones with several responses, get those kind of posters and i do report them. it's in mylot's guidelines asking members to help them clear this site of this kind of abuse.
