Hi! Yes, this has happened many, many times on Mylot. Usually, the frequent users of Mylot catch the duplication and report it to Mylot. Mylot's policy is to ban users who do this. Mylot catches them.

I usually when referring information that's on a site add the link or might quote something here or there, but I've noticed that some people copy the entire content of the site, I found it out by searching a topic to give the link and the site I found had from top to bottom the same thing on person had posted. I think that's cheating, isn't it?

Yes it does happen. I'm not sure if myLot can spot it on their own but if another member spots it they can use the ! to report a violation.
