Why do people copy other people's answers?

I thought it was "be original" yet people just copy other answers ._. and I'm not talking about the poll questions cuz that's different

I don't know that they do. Most certainly don't read others' answer before posting their own, I wouldn't think. Of course a lot of people are going to have similar answers, especially when they're the right ones.

Oh what a surprise! so glad to get to speak with you!
your nap must have had the same affect as mine.. now sleeplessness :(
Report as
I'm glad, too. Surprised to see you, also!
I slept for a couple of hours. Figure I only had about two hours sleep last night, maybe a tad more. Guess the nap helped a wee bit, though.
So, you napped too, did you?Guess tha texplains why you're here at this hour. :)

I'm still tired and was just going to get going. Getting damn late!
Report as
Yes I was exhausted... I simply couldn't go anymore.. did you have a good day? As I said my accomplished my auto repair and got my much needed shopping completed so I was able to get a meal in yesterday.. nothing fancy..it was all about just getting fed and sleep.
I sent an email and explained..
Report as
Well have a great night.. miss you
Report as
Well, dentist....so not so good, lol. Spent the day with my sister, after, though, so was pretty good, thank you.
I closed up my emails a short while ago, figuring I wouldn't get any more tonight, and thinking I'd be going to bed earlier, too. Thanks for it. :)
You are feeling yourself again?
Report as
Awwww. That's nice. :) I miss you, too, blades. : [
I wish I could stick around now, but at least we got to touch base.
Now, you get those questions!!! = )
Night, you. :)

Feeling better but not myself.. yet
it usually takes a couple of days..and with spending the day troubleshooting electrical issues.. well today didn't count as a recovery day.
I had an ablation done on my heart 6 years ago.. and with that a lifetime of migraine went away.. I have had maybe 3 since then.. one being yesterday
Report as
Night :)
Report as
Yes, I know you had an ablation. When you speak of migraines......well, so many people call a really bad headache a migraine, but it isn't. Migraines are so much more than just a bad headache. Is it actually a real migraine that you speak of?
Report as
Night. : [
Report as
Yes... the real thing.. night!
Report as
Wow, that's horrible. Absolutely horrible. I so feel for you. I also, have been a migraine sufferer since 1987. I don't think it's been as long as for you, though, by the sound of things.
Okay, I'm gone. I get the feeling I'm being pushed out the door. Night. :)
Report as
Not by me honey..
Report as
It's fine. Night. :)

Well, that makes sense, but it's not only because you don't know the answer.

They just want to be correct and not be the only one with the wrong answer.

Well, it is alright to copy the right answer. Just don't copy the wrong answer. Better to have more correct answers, than false answers.

many questions are oppinion based so it is very likely for people to have th same oppinion. others like me may not read other answers or just don't get it in fast enough to avoid a dupe.
