So go ahead and get your down-votes ready. Because I don't care given my pure disgust at this:
The user who goaded this return should be banned. Numerous examples of bad behavior have been given. – Neil Lunn Mar 28 at 14:10 declined - No, no it's not. They've very clearly explained how this was written to address problems they saw in your answer, and it is not plagiarized from your own.
The question in context is here.
Points are (and you probably need to see deletions for correct context):
Absolute plagiarism (notice how I can actually spell) of an answer given by another user to try and claim as their own. Denied?
Clear evidence that the user "claiming" their own response "completely failed" to evaluate the scope of the problem in their own initial comment.
If you are a moderator it should not be hard to "match" that the person noted as "goading" within
So the summary is:
- There was an answer provided that should have been of acceptable quality to the OP. Especially noting that the alteration still does not meet the exact requirements of the OP. We treat these with the noted inexperience of the OP to simply "copy and paste" something they expect as an output, though the actual result is difficult and unnecessary to achieve.
I have taken a lot of my personal time to try and "contribute" within the scope of the site. This is not about personal status or gain and I have spent "considerable" time providing very "lengthy" explanations to those who "appear" to be new and possibly inexperienced users, and I do hope that there is some benefit found by those you search the "knowledge-base" in the future, as a result.
I do not appreciate someone "plagiarizing" an answer, "albeit" with their "specific take" on how it should be presented in their eyes.
I also "loathe" the bad behavior of users who "goad" someone into an activity that suits their own personal needs. I persuaded ( originally ) the user who "plagiarized" the response to "re-consider" what they have done. And I have done so with other examples of "bad behavior". But to have someone come back and say, "essentially", "Yes, they did not want to change the answer given just because you left a lot of comments, so there is nothing wrong with you copying their answer and adding what "you" think is appropriate.
I have ranted too long. Point it this was a bad call by a moderator, and a complete fail on reviewing a history of targeted behavior by a user.
Anyhow down-vote away. My point is that this should not be ignored and there should not be a lack of "re-course" since in this case I raised the flags "three times".
Shock me and provide a real answer. Or even better, the action that should have happened after having to deal with this on multiple occasions.
