 I dont mind you lurking in 40ish, BUT when you take our post and use them as your own (including title) I think that is WRONG! At least you can do is let people know you "borrowed" the post from another group.

If you can't come up with an original post and need to "borrow" one why not ask if you can share. Chances are we will not mind unless its a personal post.

We pride ourself in 40ish to make original post and we don't go to any other group to steal post and make them our own. You are welcome to come in and reply and even post in 40ish even if you are not a member or for that matter 40ish and older. WE have a younger admin who isnt 40ish yet and we enjoy having all age groups joining in and voice their opinion.

Lurkers we dont bite so come in and say howdy to us.

Have a great day ~~ :)

This group isn't the only one that it's happening to unfortunately. It's sad that people think that it's okay to steal something. Most of the time, nobody would mind, if they would just be courteous and ask. I lurk more often than I post, but what I post about are my ideas, or spin offs in the respective group that I post it in.

I did not know this was happening. I admit I tend to lurk but I have NEVER EVER taken someone's post. That is just wrong!!!!!!!

 I dont mind lurkers.. Heck join in and have some fun. I have gotten PM saying that they lurk and dont say anything but come in because they know they will get a uplifting message or a good laugh.

 I've  had  them  too. They  are  also  called  trolls. As  Grop  owners  and  admins we  love  Members. But  idea  stealers  and  trolls  please  ask.
