Don't ya just have to wonder where all these cut and paste pieces of lengthy, oh so

exhausting, treasured, close to the heart, information from that wonderful World Wide

Web GOES TO at the close of the day? What happens to all this virtual information? I

mean....Give us a break! Why is it so typical of us to have to prove our point so strongly

that we can't come up with our OWN words to state things. It said THIS or he said

THAT, or blah, blah, blah. cut-paste, cut-paste. Now, if I really WAS interested in

getting another's view besides yours, I would go on that international web freeway and

find out for myself, instead of, let's be honest, folks, rolling straight through all of that *&).

What I'm really interested in -- not that anyone really cares --is, what your very own

opinion is.

Now, I've been known to do this, as well, from time to time... (but I still don't like it.)

Sometimes you can make the strongest arguments possible and it doesn't matter...people won't believe it unless your opinion is backed up my some sort of outside proof....anyway that's what a good debate is all about...opinion with concrete facts to back it up!!!!!

I am old & senile, can just barely read. One of my neighbors 9 yeqar old grandkids taught me to cut and paste and then wrote out the instructions and taped them to my desk just in case...

I only had one original thought, it took me to a great place over 26 years ago....grin

To be fair we are all guilty of this at one point or another in our lives. In defense I would like to say that sometimes what we wish to express has already been done by someone else, so much more eloquently and thoroughly than we could possibly manifest within our own simple words.
Of course there are always those so lazy or inept that they try to impress others by their virtual collections of responses to the few ideals they hold close to.
When an opinion is required it is responsible to have some form or ability to fabricate the answers from within our own ideology.
The best resort to me when a cut paste scenario is used is to add to it in a following notation, expressing how it impacts the general tone or subject that it was derived of.

Again perhaps some have no ability to communicate what they feel as they are socially crippled or not up to what they perceive as the intellectual quotient required, and out of fear they copy someone else's words to hide behind. It is also a likely safety net to deflect any inconsistency through the plagiarised report as it is not theirs if and when it falls apart under further scrutiny.

You are most welcome. It would have been petty to cut and paste after you went through the trouble of expressing a concern that required some sort of fluid response from the personal inflection of the responders.
Makes me wonder how the cut and pasters would fair in open conversation without their notebooks and computers to think for them?

Some things are just said much better by cut and paste....like the poem about peace by Lao Tzu...I think that's it...I have said the same thing many times...but he says it much lovelier than I could have ever thought of saying it....wave wink hug teddybear hug bouquet

I think people that cut and paste have no concept of what will and ego truly are...everything is interpretation, there are no facts, and whatever bolsters a sophists ultimately empty claim is suspect, because content and content speak alot to an implied agenda, even when such agenda is vehemently denied...

on the other hand, rewriting the words of somebody who you want to quote can quite easily render it void of the meaning you were trying to convey.

I have no probs with cut n paste, there are pages and pages and pages of it on here every day! - its just that most people claim its their own or have no idea of the disrespect implied by plaigiarism dunno

It was in no way whatsoever directed at you Mr oversensitive laugh hug teddybear

but there are arent there? page after page of stuff that people copy from websites, much of which we have seen time after time too laugh

just a little mention of where it came from is only good manners and gives credit to the original writer....... or just a few words of their own added - i copied this from blah blah blah is sufficient -

lots of sites provide stuff like 'the daily good thought' etc and i see people posting them and getting praise for their writing skills too the cheeky buggers - you only have to google the first couple of lines to find exactly where they got it from rolling on the floor laughing

as I said, I dont have a prob with cut n paste but i do have one with people who take the credit for other peoples writing - must be the academic in me laugh
