    I've been reading through a few threads recently where some newbie asks a question and a big blue member with lots of rep will come and give a good answer.

    Next thing I see, 5 newbies come and paste the same answer almost word for word, as if they had just thought of it on their own.

    Are some people that desperate for rep, credibility and recognition, that they will go to any length, risk life and limb simply to get a pat on the back and a free drink that evening?

    Or maybe some people are just really oblivious to anything going on around them...

    Hahaha I knew that was coming. I think you're right though. 15 posts ASAP and then they're gone.

    Whenever I make it into a thread, I'm normally too late to post something like that. :[ But yes, I've seen people join that day, have 15 posts made in an hour, then remain like that for days.
