Now I don't mind some copy/paste responses. Well I do but I bear with them as it is. Now read this one in my discussion. It's response #29. http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1113897.aspx?p=3 Well don't read it just look at this. It has to be near 1,500 words if not more. The response is not about the topic nor even my breed of dog. And it ends abruptly as you can copy only so many words. This is unreal. I even left this person a response too. Hahaha. Thanks and other members, please don't be like this member. PLEASE! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Hello Grandpa Bob, I saw that earlier when I was surfing. When I saw that my response waw like yours "holy ****". I don't like when someone does that, especialy when it doesn't have anything to do with your discussion. It looks like someone is here to make money and not follow the rules. Too bad people do that. Peace, Totty

Web u dont have to worry about getting a response like that from me every. I remember when i was below 500 posts and i was trying so hard to get there so i could copy and paste. Once i reached there i never did do it dont have the need or desire to at least that poster could have pasted something relevant to the discussion. I like to respond n my own thoughts and feelings so i would never paste articles for a response cause that is not my own thoughts for feelings that is someone elses. I cannot say i will never use copy and past on mylot but never like that i can tell you for sure.

First off please, It's "Grandpa Bob" I wouldn't expect it from you either. I copy/paste some things but not like that. And when I do copy/paste I give credit as most that I do are from a web page or news stroy. Thanks for the responses also. Have a great day/evening. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I rea it. it's so obvious that he copied & pasted. It doesn't even diretly relate to your discussion. How silly! I mean how does this person think he is going to earn money from My Lot? I recognise his name too. I am fairly sure he recently applied to be a friend. I will delete him right now.

Well, grandpa...if you want to read the continuation of what this poster pasted in your discussion, here's the link: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1159360.aspx This poster is clearly a certified copy and paste fanatic. I wouldn't mind anyone posting a response using pasted words for as long as they acknowledged the sources. I can't help but to keep shaking my bunny head.

I used some of my time and I check from him profile the answers he gave.All was copy and past as much lines the copy and paste let us do.............all except one (I thing he didn't find something to copy)so him not copy answer was one 1 word(not line but word)answer. I don't know what you want we do but i thing the right is we report him...don't you agree?

The Wrong Way to respond huh??? Quite silly I think! It's sad that people are money hungry like that. I have just started on the lot and I am no where near copy/paste time but I know that there have been some responses that I am long winded, but to cheat the system. You can't win. I'm glad you put him on front street so all can see what trifling people do. Sorry about the doo doo duty but hope all is well!!!!!!!!!!!

I mentioned before I'm learning all the ins and outs from reading your discussions; but this one rule I already knew about and cannot believe how very obvious this poster was. I also rated him/her (I didn't pay attention to the avatar) with an exclamation point.

Well webeishere, did you report it as abuse? I did. I hope others reading it will as well. It is too bad that people will do that, as it makes things hard for the rest of us.

Forgive me for being so formal, but I am married to "Grandpa Bob" so that one is a little tough for me. I should have read all the other responses as well. Back in the day, I would have done the same as others and checked out his profile more thoroughly. We weed them out one at a time.

Yes I did. This was started to bring this member out in the open to my friends and others to also report if they felt the urge etc. One response here also included a link to another discussion where the exact response stopped at the same point was copied. Thanks and have a great one. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Grandpa Bob, Looks like the post has been deleted. That's fine, but I was curious what the other poster had to "say!" LOL! It wasn't too long ago, I had a poster respond to one of my discussions. I read it, re-read it, and then looked again at what I wrote. The poster copied and pasted MY original post!!! I thought it was totally ironic that he/she had children with the same names AND nicknames as my kids! How dumb can some people be?

Did you report it? As I am sure you do not mean the #29 that is there now!

The original #29 was a long documentary cut and pasted on collie dogs and MyLot deleted as several of us reported the person....I felt Grandpa Bob deserved a proper twenty ninth response and so I then placed a response there in that discussion. Thanks so much for your concern and I am glad you liked my response :)

Hello,grandpabob,according to the mylot discussion rules,if someone have copied something from any sources without referencing,it will be against the rules,although i do not likr to report other people,but if we do not do it,there may be more and more copy and paste later on.It may also be annoying if someone try to reply you something totally irrelvant to your discussions.
• United States
22 Jun 07
Yes, the response that you are talking about is now gone. I had someone do that on my discussion earlier today and I made sure I reported it. I even commented on how they ripped off that person's answer. It was a very thoughtful answer that was ripped off and I recognized it right away. That's just awful.

hi there. If it irritates you and you think that the response that you get didn't answer or give a right comment for your discussion, then you can give it a negative rating, or if you think that a certain response is abusive or you felt that it was just copied like the you showed you can give an (!) exclamation point so you can report it to Mylot staff and they can apprehend this kind of members who do not contribute rightfully to the growth of Mylot. :-) I've seen the discussion and yes, his response was terrible.. Very few people can paste in the discussion, that user have a high rating if he can paste, or he may have the patience to write all those words here.. Have a nice day!! SMILE :-)

Well Grandpa bob Someone was listening because I just went there and it has been removed. That was rediculous. I was going to report it as well but too late. :)
