Default Forum member copying posts

Hi everyone,

It has come to my attention that there is a member on the forums copying posts word for word (only 2 so far).

They are not 'quoting' other peoples posts and adding their own info, they are actually copying and pasting to make it look like their own post.

Looks like originality has died?

Hi Alice,

It's a form of spam, I'm afraid

I've just banned the person you were referring to, but if you ever spot it from anyone else, please feel free to let us know using the 'Report post' button.

We'll be delighted to show them the door!

Jayne

Thanks Jayne.

I figured as much because they've now disappeared
