Why is copying prohibited in ISC, copying is but natural!Copying of text is prohibited in ISC. If you copy text and put it in your thread or content or resource, you will be subjected to an initial warning. If this becomes a regular issue with you, you will be prohibited to post any content in ISC for a stipulated amount of time.
But this morning a thought came to me. We humans copy other human beings. It is in our nature. We do not learn everything when we are in the mother's womb. We develop reflexes from our habitat and learn things from our surroundings and our guardians. That is why you will see that, when you grow up as an adult your relatives or people close to you, tell you that you are jut like your father or your so and so behavior reminds us of your mother or your aunt etc. The reason behind this is that while growing up few people help you learn various things, be it at home or at school. You see these people everyday around you and that is why you tend to imitate your elders while growing up. The way they shrug their shoulders, they nod their head, walk or talk, you tend imitate such things. That is how you develop your personality.
This is true in the professional world also. Juniors imitate their managers when they are promoted as managers, actors imitate senior actors, dancer imitate their mentors, we editors imitate the format followed by the senor editors and so on.
So I feel, copying comes naturally to human beings. Our basic existence is a copy of the DNA possessed by our parents and their ancestors. So we should not be so offended if we see someone copying. What say?
