Computer, multitasking, copy and paste these things are all linked together. If you can't have them all, having only one of them won't make sense. Ok, so that's just my theory but let's put it into application: One day I lost my profile in my computer at work. 'Couldn't open any application that I need for my work and worst, couldn't do copy and paste which usually help me to multi-task. The things I would usually do in a minutes took me longer because I had to type all things manually. Like when I need to provide someone a URL which is more than a .com page. Oh my it was really horrible. When I started myLot I realized that they have deactivated copy-paste too until you reach 500 posts. At first it was a bit annoying specially I'm used to that control in my keyboard - CTRL + C/ CTRL + V. But then it also makes sense doing that otherwise some people will just copy-paste things from other sources. How about you, what are your thoughts about using copy-paste?

Well, me, I can survive even if there is no copy paste. Actually I limit my using of the copy paste even though I have the power to do so here in mylot. I just use the copy paste when there is a link or when therec is a forwarded mails that I want to share here. But as much as possible I limit my use of that special powers.

I don't know what I'd do without copy or paste. I'd lose it! I always copy and paste things for homework, work, when I'm on here or just doing other stuff.
