You closed it as I was trying to answer.

Also, there's a big difference between plagiarism and inspiration. Plagiarism is taking someone else's words and using them as your own, without giving them credit, and claiming they are yours. Inspiration is the spark of an idea. I get inspired by books, movies, TV shows, situations in a grocery store. I do not replicate those things exactly, but they make me go "What if?" and I take off with it. That is my own, individual creativity, not plagiarism or fan fiction. Here's a little Plagiarism 101 for you, to help you out.

It depends entirely on how long it took to type my response. If it was a long one, I get irritated. If it was short and sweet (or not so sweet), I figure it's for the best.
