People who copy topics from existing threads and post them as "their own"

You're the scum of the earth.

You're like those chinese intellectual property thieves.

You have no original ideas of your own, so you try to act as though it was your idea in the first place. Even though someone else has already posted that idea, and that thread.

You are desperate for attention, because something is clearly lacking in your pathetic lives.

And you need to die in a grease fire.

You know who you are.

Harsh, OP. but if their lives are so pathetic that they need attention to feel better, why don't you just throw some attention their way? It's a mitzvah.

by Anonymousreply 111/11/2020

I don't do it, but I have had topics that I have posted in threads pop up as a new thread. I have no way of knowing whether they copied from me for found it themselves and neither do you OP. Either way I don't give a shit, if they thought it deserved its own thread why should I care?

R4 you don't have enough things in your life to entertain you. Anything you post is there for anyone to do what they wish with. There are a great number of threads on DL that are copied word for word from Reddit. If I post something in a thread that I didn't think deserved its own thread but someone else does so be it and you can get as upset as you wish but you can't stop them either so take a chill pill and find something else to get upset about.

Do you know how many previous threads there have been on this exact subject OP? Do you? I mean seriously, do you? Have you done any kind of research on it? Did you? Did you do any kind of search first? Did you? What did you do? Tell us OP. Tell us how you searched for prior threads you filthy asshole fucker. Show us what you did . Provide a link or a screenshot butt hole breath. Can you at least do that? Can you? Why would you even think of coming here and posting a thread like this when you know damn good and well there have already been many of the exact same threads that have preceded this same fucking subject. Answer me bastard. You owe everyone here the truth as to why you feel you are so much better than every other person here that you can just walk your ass in here without doing a search first. You just eat shit. I hate you OP and I hope you get AIDS.

Meh, people have done it to me. I don't care.

I wish this was all I had on my plate to worry about.

OP, you must lead quite a charmed life.

I'm envious.

OP needs to get laid. Lighten up, Mary.

OP, the doctor just called. It's malignant.

by Anonymousreply 1511/11/2020

He's the Copycat Thread Thief and likely an Asperger's case.

There's nothing cool or knowledgeable about him; he has no friends in his own town with peers of his own mental illness. He has no taste.

So name-dropping pop culture anonymously online is the only way he can trap others into social interaction and the illusion of cachet.

Every noun mentioned in a previous thread "Deserves its own thread," especially if it's irrelevant pop, and he WILL start their own threads.

It's an attempt to squeeze relevance out of irrelevance; an attempt to draw extra social time out of his victims; an attempt to make you like him because of better people you liked.

30-40 years ago.

One thing that drives him nuts is posting the Reply numbers and linking to the thread of your original comments informing DL of whatever subject he's stealing or passing off as his own knowledge and observations.

His threads quickly die after that. Everybody loses interest when they realize where the full insights were already delivered and that the OP is a loony and a thief.

r9 = The Copycat Thread Thief, all butt-hurt for being called out AGAIN, W&Wíng himself for the same, lame screed he cuts and pastes every time he's exposed.

by Anonymousreply 1711/11/2020

No, r14, the Copycat Thread Thief is a biter, a public nuisance and 65% of the content on this site.

It's TOO much.

My gawd, get a life peeps. Such a freakin' first world "problem".

R19 = The Copycat Thread Thief, who needs his own life and to stop polluting Datalounge with redundant threads.

by Anonymousreply 2011/11/2020

Oh for fuck's sake R20, I don't even have an account. Sheesh.

by Anonymousreply 2111/11/2020

Maybe she couldn't bump old threads anymore, so she copies and starts NEW old threads as her own?

by Anonymousreply 2211/11/2020

Then the original threads would be Closed and labeled as such.

Truth is, most original threads have more insights and participants and are still updateable. They even have posts from the OP of the repeated thread.

The Redundant Thread Thief just wants to rehash the same, tired subjects and prolong conversations with people he’s already milked dry before. It’s desperate for social interaction and resorts to entrapment.

It’s particularly fond of horror movies and you can’t tell me we need all 137 threads for THE EXORCIST, FRIDAY THE 13TH and HALLOWEEN.

All regular members of DL know that the search engine here sucks big time. That aside, there are people who race to post “breaking news “ without even attempting to do a search. Mediapolis needs to fix the search option so it is open to a wider set of rules.

And Google has an excellent, Advanced Search Function DLers should utilize in the meantime.

OP you sound like the lawyer who started the thread complaining about people showing up early.

The Aspie Copycat Thread Thief strikes again!

This time he stole my mention of the Matt Foley SNL sketch for a new thread, even though he already covered his thread subject in a thread just a year ago.

If you are so Hell-bent on getting attention perhaps you should sign all of your posts with your real name and address so we can send you a bouquet of flowers every time you make a really fun post.

r31 = Copycat Thread Thief and social undesirable.

Why do you think he spends all his time on DL and has to steal others' ideas or exploit artists other people DO like?

It's because he's a nutjob and psycho with no boundaries that nobody wants to be around IRL.

by Anonymousreply 32Last Saturday at 6:34 PM

Well, well, well!

The Copycat Thread Thief is up to his daily tricks! This time the maniac and socially repugnant OP stole the "Angry Songs" thread idea from the "Divorce Playlist" thread, where I posted "You Ought to Know" and the person in need discussed whether angry songs were appropriate.

Please F&F this biter, social leech OP and let him Google angry songs if he needs them so badly. He doesn't deserve your knowledge and he's NOT good company..

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
