I guess this is what happens when I try to take a break to get some work done...
I don't see any numbers posted by chouquounette that were copied and pasted from somebody else.
I also don't see a system posted from Goldie Locks or anyone else showing how to derive followers. So as far as I'm concerned, if chouquounette is posting numbers, they are hers.
I have asked for links to posts showing that chouquounette has copied and pasted something she did not create.
I have also asked for links to posts showing that JWWRI has copied and pasted something he did not create.
I have received neither. So I'm wondering what this argument is about, starting with the post that claimed that JWWRI was copying chouquounette's followers. There is nothing wrong with defending one's original work, but you must be able to point to your original work if you're going to call someone out like that. I think that's only fair.
The concept of "Followers" was not invented by Goldie Locks. So if chouquounette is posting follower numbers that have not been posted before, and don't follow a specific system posted to the forums, then I don't see how they could possibly be a copy of someone's work.
As far as I'm concerned, they are original.
If someone wants to post a link to a post that shows these same numbers posted before, or post a link to a post that shows a specific system that would lead to these numbers, then I would be happy to look at it.
But please don't post something that bears no resemblance to chouquounette's post and say she copied it.
Note: copying and pasting some text from "somewhere" on the forums does no good to me. There are over 1 million forum posts, and I'm not going to spend the afternoon trying to track down the needle in the haystack. There are buttons and icons all over the place that can provide the exact link to any post, and detailed instructions for obtaining and posting links are in the Help forum, so I can't keep going though this.
All of us have been around a long time, long enough to know that all of these concepts were developed a long time ago, before the Internet. However, different people have different versions of systems.
Lottery Post offers Lucky's Followers System, which is a fantastic followers system, and is not a copy of anything posted on the forums. Numbers with the word "followers" in the title does not mean that it is a copy, it just refers to the technique.
