When starting a new discussion do you copy and paste?

Do you write out your discussion first then copy and paste it on here? I have done it once since I have been able to copy and paste. But for some reason it just seems easier for me to type it out. I like typing and it keeps me up to speed when I type. I am pretty fast at typing so I find it just as easy for me to type out what I am thinking about. So my question to all of you that can copy and paste do you copy and paste your discussions?

I like to write myself because it helps me alot with my English, If you do Copy and Paste it makes you become lazy and that is not good at all with the young people.

Hi Tombela and welcome to my lot. I don't think you will be able to copy and paste for some time. I like to type it keeps my skills up. Since school I have tried to do a lot more typing to make my typing a lot faster. Thanks

It could be useful sometimes. You may experience having your post disappeared due to problem on connection or on browser that you are using. To save time, it is suggested to make a backup so there is no need to retype. You will post your own idea then save it on a word processing software such as notepad, it doesn't make a user lazy as they type from their own thought, just made a backup just in case a problem occurs. It can be used when you want to quote a phrase posted by other users. It has a limitation, it must not be used for plagiarizing other's idea.

Hi Boogerman. I like it cause I can copy a url to put on here. That way I get the right url address.I used it once to see what it would be like. I need to start keeping my note pad open so I can copy and paste my response has disappeared several times cause I didn't copy it. Thanks

I use these features, because if we are to send typing our own type some text suddenly disappeared. This feature helps us so that we are still typing can be saved, which I know there are browsers that can save it is Chrome or the other.

Hi May sorry it took me so long to respond. I like the copy and paste option but have only used it once on here. I haven't used chrome I downloaded it but didn't like the way it acted. Thanks

I can copy and paste but don't do that for my discussions - I type my discussion straight off then check it for mistakes; if it's ok I post it, if it needs some more work I do what's necessary and then post it. I find it easier that way.

Hi Abbey. I love to keep my skills up to par. That is why I like to type. I like learning new things and I find it easier to just type my discussions too. Thanks

I just type them right into the box. I've never felt any great need to copy/paste my discussions.

Hi Cutepenguin. I think it is just as easy to type it myself too. I was just wonder for those of us that can copy and paste if many of us do it. I don't I think I did one but that was just after I was able to do it. Thanks

Hi Java. I have copied and pasted one discussion on here. But like you I would rather type it out. I use the copy and paste to put a url on here but that is about all I use it for. Thanks

Hi Sknsknskn. I don't copy and paste even though I can. I like typing and like improving my typing skills and it makes me type faster.
