This person has over 700 posts and everyone that i have seen has been copied and pasted from someone else. I can not say their name because its against mylot rules but you can look at my discussion on "sausage in your eggs and milk in your tea. What i can't understand is why mylot continues to allow this. Its plagiarism. I think we all need to start reporting every post they make. They need to be stopped!!

this is bad, most people like me try our best in order to come up with our own ideas to share in this forum. now if that persons' purpose is so that he/she can claim earnings by copying everyones' postings, shame on them! i havent even been paid yet and i dont do that because i want to earn from my ideas. these people should be banned from this community/ forum. i am so mad, it tells a lot about that person. cheating just to get a few dollars? man, that person must be sooo desparate.

mssnow, i'll be very, very disappointed if someone did copy my entries and were paid by mylot. i have been here for four months and i havent made the $10 mark yet because i wanted each of my responses to be unique. i am checking now on my postings. i have never imagined that people can be so low just for a few dollars.

Honestly I seldom see people copy and paste other;s replies, I think the quality of discussions are very high in mylot,but it is hard to avoid copy and paste as mylot cannot simply monitor the activities of all the members and their discussions, may be some of them can stay alive in mylot even they have 500 copy and paste replies.

Its quite shocking to hear this.two weeks before a mylotter a posted a similar topic mentioning the username of the person who has copied others and posted it as his own.Its something stealing others effort and making money out of it.I think you can complaint to mylot about that user so that they can take some action against him.

Yes. It happens and it happens. Sick people are everywhere and they are becoming a menace to our myLot community. I always report when I see such situations, and would leave a comment for others to report as well.

Well, normally I would do the same thing , but this person has posted almost all of their posts as someone Else's . They copied and pasted them. If it were just one or two I wouldn't be as mad as I am now I would just report them and leave it at that. I have made it a mission to stop them.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. MyLot is a community and we should work together to keep our community free from copy and pasters. I can't understand their mentality. Why would anyone do this for a cent or two? Regardless of their reasons, we MUST report every instance we find. I'll go to the address you gave in a response and add my report. Thanks again.

Thank you cloud watcher. I actually have been monitoring their responses and I think they have stopped posting so something must have been done already.

Mmm, I've noticed this too and I'm pretty sure I know the person you are talking about, I've had two on my discussions in the last two days! We had a good period where cheating was very scarce, but now suddenly there's been quite a lot of going on, I will not hesitate in reporting people who blatantly copy and paste other people's responses and I also rely on my good friends to let me know when this has happened too!

I will be watching. If I see the person doing this, then I will also report them. I agree that this not right. I will be checking your other posting and see if I can figure out who it is and then I will see if they have done this on any of my postings. Thank you for the heads up.

You can definitely mention the user's name if it is a cheater. I've done it before and my discussions weren't deleted in fact the cheater was well on his way out of mylot! Please report that person and bring it to users notice so more reports can be made. If all 700 are copy/paste then it will take more than just you and me to make reports. We need to spot where the user is copying responses from and then report it. If its from other responses on the same discussion then its a little easy to spot. Do report that user and you can write to mylot too about this user. They will look into it immediately! Mylot relies on users too to alert them on such cheaters.
