People have probably used them in the past. Used to see quite a few posts that had copied an entire post but changed a few words for a synonym etc.

What a strategy to have a constructive post copying the same post by other members. There should be a punishment to these user.

But I think, for me getting some several lines from others and combined them is fine as long as it make sense and not off topic. Atleast they made a little effort. But copying the same post and just pasting it which they didn't made any effort have a penalty. Just my 20cents (This is only my opinion, of course im not doing it)

A basic rewriting script can also be used. There are many out there free to download and people write their own. For example. Take the post I am quoting. Running it through a one pass rewrite app; this is what it generated all on its own, I made no changes to it myself.

....

No it's not perfect, but its passable as a "non first language english" person perhaps.

Honestly, I feel every day more and more the content I see online, whether on twitter, news posts, blogs, everywhere, its not a human at all. Scary. And to think it's just the begining.

Hmm...Tough to catch these ones, even if you do a google search.
Others who change a word or two will still show up in the search results.

It will be a good idea to start advertising and make all know about it worldwide. As said, current business trend is to advertise online and public about the business to spread all over. We need to set up stores. This would bring more hidden money into lights. This would make the economy wealthy. More will be employed.

I think in all perma-ban cases, admins should do a quick scan for alts. The loss of one account won't really hurt account farmers.
Or is this already being done?

snip.

Just had to say - I laughed and laughed, so funny!  Grin

While im here, i found this,

Many things are yet to come before the end of the year and for sure more things are going to happen before the end of this year.
And the effect of halving is going to happen for the year of 2017 and it is going to be the year of bitcoin.
But it is always the year of bitcoin.

i like the way it is written,it is reminding me of kids who would stare at an examination question paper and when he finds out he does not know any answer he starts to pun with words,just filling the answer sheet with question from back to front and most of the times i would see film stories too in answer sheets ,recreating same things is fun to watch and good job rolla

A user who is just starting off.
But that should not be any excuse.  Roll Eyes

Original
Bitcoin seems like the perfect currency for developing countries, the only potential downsides are it's vulnerability to hacking and it's irreversible nature (which can also be a positive). It strips out many fees associated with banks or payment transfer systems like Western Union. It could potentially be stopped by governments if they make it hard to exchange into a local currency but people can be surprisingly creative when it comes to obstacles like that. I fear however that low tech governments would want to block it when they are scared off it by established payment processors who want to prevent competition.

Another one....

Example 1
Fluctuations in global crude oil prices have always been the focus of the economic and financial news. The higher crude oil prices rise, the more positive is the economic outlook for petroleum exporters. In contrast, countries dependent on petroleum imports suffer to varying degrees from those same higher prices as import bills increase. Estimates for the price per barrel for crude oil from leading financial and multilateral institutions are thus closely monitored by governments, investors, and consumers alike.

Copied straight from
https://knoema.com/infographics/yxptpab/crude-oil-price-forecast-long-term-2016-to-2025-data-and-charts


Example 2
I'm a religious person figuring out and accepting that the purpose of life is different from each individual and varies from the like Growing up Christian and until now is that people's perspective change and people change but what doesn't change (or changes as little as possible) is what you enjoy as a person or what makes you happy as an individual by which you should pursue with the fullest extent of your mind body an soul. Granted, within the laws of your state and country which as well protects you and your fellow neighbors from those whose pursuit of happiness may/may not be as well accepted by those of authority, nevertheless, as long as your passion in life is legal (to an extent) there should be no reason to find out who you are and then find what makes you happy and then going on from there only you and you alone can make this decision.
However, it's perfectly acceptable to ask for guidance every now an then. Good luck!

But what about the alts mentioned by avirunes? All the addresses mentioned as proof were posted quite recently (less than 20 days ago). Wouldn't that be conclusive enough to ban all those accounts?

I didn't realize that copy-pasters go to this extent.

The user apriloni has been necro-posting quite a bit.

One of his posts stood out.

The odds might be rising because Messi might not be in the starting line.
If not that will suck for over on goals bets or for a half time win.

Is he injured? What's the reason he didn't start in final game? It's too rare he miss games for injuries but he missed a couple at the start of previous season. If he plays Argentina is the favorite, but I don't underestimate Chile and Alexis Sanchez. They are the last champion for a reason.
No. That is usually the reason why they rise all the sudden when something like that comes to known before a match starts.
But they are back to 1.83 so I am guessing those assumptions of an absence have been quelled.


A necro post in a gambling discussion? I thought this would be a copy-paste and sure enough Google agreed.
There was a post by jt byte in the same thread.
The original post is there in Google Cache and has been deleted.
My hypothesis - apriloni is an alt of jt byte and is deleting posts in 1 profile and posting it in the other.  Tongue

In the past, I have seen many bots copying and pasting old post in the same thread, but just now I found one copying old post from one thread and pasting it in a different thread. I would have never noticed it, if the post being copied is not mine.



Account: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=372009

My strategy is simple: Set a stop-loss target and a stop-gain target before playing and stop immediately when I hit the target.
It won't help me beat the house, but it guarantee I won't lose more than I should.

Yup, some people will not like being responsible. It's too stressful to keep track of all your wealth, do a lot of backups, and hope your house doesn't burn or you don't get stolen. Thats why some people like banks and trust them more than what they trust themselves.

Unless bitcoin goes mainstream we still need banks to process all the fiat transactions, provide loans and stuff. And the whole thing actually revolves around debt and these are what keeps banks alive. Until then there is no harm if btc exist alongside fiat.

Wow! that's really a wise decision there >.< and good luck with them because they are going to get ban from this forum but really why do they even copy a post and post it? i mean they have no brain? sorry for being rude but they are just eager to post and they search and search for a new topic and they don't even see one so they copy it i have a friend that he posted a long and understandable reply to a topic so someone copied and edited it -_- so that he won't get caught but really when my friend read it i mean his replied on my friends reply same topic as him but edited i really laugh and  think that how stupid he is to copy a sentence then replies it to the one he copied i mean that's no brainer >.< sorry for being rude i just want to express this and this is the right topic for it >.<

So does it mean that my hypothesis of users deleting their old posts and submitting them again got finally confirmed?

Bots are easily distinguished among members. Bots are 100% accurate, if you've seen too perfect posts about a certain topic, or too off-topic about that post, then that is easily perceptible. One example of this is if the topic is about Etherium mining and you've seen a post regarding other Altcoins. Then that would be easily distinguished.

I agree about completely off-topic posts

In fact, I caught a few copy-pasters myself because their posts were too out of place. But what do you mean by too perfect posts on a certain topic? I often check my recent posts for typos and grammar as well as correct them with the purpose of more smooth exposition (though I don't pretend that they are perfect, of course), and I've received positive feedback about their content and substance (both in private and public). Could you give an example of such a post, I'm really curious to see that

Sorry but your friend should've reported the message to a moderator. It's not the mod's job to search through every post for plagiarism and delete them. I recommend theymos to develop a script to detect potentially similar posts under a certain topic unless they fall under giveaway or service section.

Kind of. But this wasn't a newbie deleting old posts and another newbie posting them.
The original post was by a Hero member. I guess the account must have been banned if the user didn't mind deleting the posts.
