Is there ever a time in the realm of ... needing to project your own personal views and in return receiving the satisfaction from positve feedback from said projections...2 flat out "copy and paste"(without providing the morally, accepted types of reference) the basis of backing up your fake "Doctorate" dissertations?
Are you asking about two things?
Copy and paste someone else's work (other than a short quote)? No.
Pretend you have a fake degree? No.
Having been a victim of plagiarism too many times, my answer is a firm no. If you want to use my words, please put them in quotes and attribute them to me. A link to the original article is appreciated.
Is it ever OK?
Well, that was easy.
Sorry..to clarify the "Doctorate" descriptive term...it should be more accurately described as "Wannabe Doctorate Sounding" revelations in order to sound like in possession of, either,:
1). A tremendous ability to recall, and quote -- from memory -- knowledge acquired through various, totally legitimate, forms of knowledge acquistion.
2). The fakery, short cut-ed-ness of: simply Google Search and paste, which will suffice, to impress those of whom, you desire the accolades of, for the desired result of, your assurance of, your right to exist in..the present reality of..You and Me Babe = ¹, ⁴ u ², ⁴ me!
Are you talking about something like a chat or a Facebook conversation?
Yes, I've seen it before. Faking qualifications to seem qualified or to impress people. Annoying as hell especially if they are faking qualifications for something you are very qualified for; makes it seem less legitimate when a person who actually has training in the subject talks about the subject; I mean, if someone can fake it, who's to say everyone out there talking about it might be. Thank God for real life interactions in which people you are in contact with know about you and work with you in the particular area that you are qualified to talk about.
The question of right or wrong, I don't know. I always have trouble with that question because 9 times out of 10 it has to do with context.
If you are falling back on a degree, real or fake, to bolster your argument -- your argument sucks. The answer is to get a better argument or learn the pointlessness of arguing with most people. I happen to have a PhD but that doesn't mean I talk like a plagiarised article, or am a smarter person that any given individual without a degree.
TL;DR argument from authority is lame, plagiarism makes it lamer.
It's a bit of a rum debate in some ways as the word "plagiarism" implies bad behavior. There are reasonable grounds for "copying" things sometimes in life, though never when it's done in a deceitful, dishonest, selfish, or unlawful fashion.

If I were voting, I'd vote to confirm Amy Coney Barrett for SCOTUS.I'd ask her some questions about her views on various settled cases, but that is not a litmus test for her confirmation. Her political views should have nothing to do with her confirmation. The only question that matters is whether...

I would like to hear people's opinions on using curse words. Obviously, people get offended by them because of social norms, but is there any actually difference between saying poop and sh!t? The only argument I can think of is that curse words have been found to relieve anger and express to...
