Hopping Mad.....

Good morning all. I have to say that I do not usually title my discussions like I am this one, but sadly, I am. I was just reading a discussion that I posted yesterday, reposted by another member. Right down to the same picture being used. Why or why do members think that they can pull something like that off. It irks me. Have you had anyone steal any of your discussions as of late?

I don't understand why some people do this and think they can get away with it. Unbelievable.

It just hits that nerve that nobody wants to hit, and I only posted that discussion yesterday. It is insulting and very under-handed.

@Juliaacv agreed. You have good reason to be upset.

@Juliaacv I wonder if people who do this realize that what they're doing amounts to theft?

Oh my goodness Julia - what a cheek! I haven't had anybody do it lately, but it's happened to me in the past. Has the pest been dealt with yet?

Yes, surprisingly enough, I just went to get the user's name and the discussion has been taken down.

Yes I reported it but another member, @JJ had already beat me to the punch. So the discussion was taken down and the member's account cancelled within a very short time.

They are fools and obviously think no one will notice. Anyone who hangs out here any length of time gets suspicious whe. They see the same or similar posts appear.

@Juliaacv I remember seeing that happen with very obviously spam posts written Ina foreign language on the Bubblews site. I would have deleted both accounts. But then I tend to be a little intolerant of idiots.

I've just come from JJ's discussion about this. I have never come across this. Maybe I'm not 'connected' to the same people.

Copying/ stealing your thoughts/ idea/ works is really irritating. I can't imagine how irresponsible that user was. I hope the admin can check it.

Well the kicker is, I only put up one discussion yesterday, and this is the one that they choose to put up as their own work today. Really? I am (understandably) very upset over this. Another member, thankfully, posted a well-written discussion explaining how this is not an accepted practise on our website here. Hopefully that member reads his discussion and comprehends it, along with any others that might be clear on how things are done around here.

I was blown away by just how quickly they dealt with it, it was really wonderful, and sends a very powerful message that this type of activity is not tolerated.

That's really low. If they plagiarized, at least get it from another site. Did you reported it?

Me and one other member reported it. He had his account closed on this site as a result.

I agree, but if you put up just 1 discussion yesterday, and you saw it up today by somebody else, you'd recognize and report it. It really upset me, I felt very violated.

None so far. That's wrong and nothing original. They should get more than a slap on the wrist. The post and user should be removed, the earnings deduced and then gone. And there's users who post multiple discussions just to get people to respond. That irks me too.

It really hit a nerve with me. Thankfully another member had already come across it before me and taken the necessary steps to report it, now the discussion and I believe, the member are both gone. They sent him packing.

I hate this form of plagiarism. I had a discussion plagiarized here several weeks ago and I remember that I had many when I wrote at Bubblews. I hope that those users are thrown out of the site immediately.

When I saw it, I knew I read it the day before. I was about to slam my laptop because I hate dishonest people. This has not happened to me yet but if it will happen, I won't think twice of publicly humiliating that person even if that would lead to my kicking out of this site.
