This one leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth, but I defer to others as to whether it is appropriate or not. In this question, I wrote an answer to a question based on my experiences; it was upvoted and accepted, woo.
Now, today, in response to a different — but related — question, someone has pasted my answer nearly verbatim (awkward English intact, I may add) as an answer.
Is that really okay? Is it a behavior that should be encouraged? Discouraged?
