Do you get more annoyed when someone on your friends list duplicates your post?

I have put up quite a few posts in the time I have been here. I always get somewhat annoyed when I see my posts duplicated. I know it is not necessarily the users fault because the search feature doesn't really work all the time. This morning someone on my friends list duplicated a post that I had posted roughly 20 minutes earlier. That really got under my skin. Do you tend to get more annoyed when someone on your list duplicates your response.

Do you mean they actually copied your posting word for word, or just posted a very similar discussion hun. If they had actually copied it word for word then yes I would be really annoyed. If they had posted some thing very similar, well these things do happen from time to time with the huge number of people on here discussions are bound to be similar on occasion.

Not word for word, but the same exact topic, with almost the same questions, using the same references and similar tags.

It is annoying that if we see the duplication of our posts.But it may not be just copyeing all tha time.There must have people who have same thinking way as you.That also be a problem.We can see many discussion with same content.Not exactly word by word.But the subject and the meaning.Thanks

I know it is against mylots TOS, but since the search bar doesn't work. it gives everyone the opportunity to duplicate another's post..(I haven't had that done to mine, I guess my posts are boring.. ) There are some minor problems with mylot..Maybe bring this up to crash sometime, say that not being able to search causes many duplicates..

it is against mylot guidelines to duplicate post of other members. although, it is possible that we can post silimilar post from the others but definitely on the content but not on the subject. once my post is being copied i post my discussions link to my comment on the her/his discussions so she/he might know that i posted it already.
