First I know about copying and pasting content and I don't agree with, but that is not what I am doing. It happens after I hit preview discussion, but if I use the back button and hit preview again it works fine. Is this happening to anyone else? It only started this morning.

This is a new rule from myLot. Nothing is wrong. This rule states that a user with a rating below 500, cannot copy and paste answers, even if it is legitimate. THis is to stop new members registering and just spamming everywhere. I think this is a good move by myLot.

I just figured out what was happening. It wasn't that I was copy or pasting anything but the fact that I left the window to check another window I have open. I do this because when I press preview it sometimes takes a minute to respond so I go check my email or work on something else for a minute and when I come back that dialog box is there. Now it makes sense. At first I thought the system thought I was copying and pasting. Thanks for the response and have a great day.

Happened to me too. I posted and wanted to correct something on a post that I did not want to re-type so I copied the part I wanted to keep and it would not let me paste it. So I looked a bit silly with 2 responses to the same post. 1 a little rambling with a bad typo.

Well I think you just helped me clue in. I always, well almost always, copy the content of my posts because a few times the system just didn't work and when I refreshed the screen the content that I had typed was gone, so I started copying it first. That is probably what caused the dialog box to appear. thanks you didn't realize how helpful you would be did you. :)
