@jmars,
eh? why not be mean to someone who posts dozens of times with the same lame question? Maybe oolong knows something the rest of us don't re what this is all about.

The poster, she or he, is smart enough to find the question window multiple times.

The legal system in New zealand is completely separate and different to the legal system in America. Some of New Zealand laws may be similar to American laws but only because of the general aspect of being suitable for a westernised country, for example its against the law to shoot someone in both Newzealand and America.

New Zealand's legal system has its roots in the English legal system but many laws are different and special to New Zealand.

i'm glad you have shown an interest in another subject.

As far as I know both countries share significant legal heritage from England (as do many other countries).

I think my mother would say that it is because it's not nice and it's not the way you'd want to be treated (for posting a bunch of posts in a row in most topics for example, explaining how you are about to read it and then announcing that you've finished reading it and might have some thoughts later etc).

@OmSigDAVID,
We are dealing with what appears to be a childs dave. Overcomplicating answers will just cause confusion. when further clarrification is required we will be informed i suspect.

@jmars,
iF YOU COPY SOMEONE YOU MAY BE IN BREACH OF COPYRIGHT LAW OR TRADEMARK LAW.
some performers have copyrighted their "look".

Some jurisdictions also recognize "moral rights" of the creator of a work, such as the right to be credited for the work. Copyright is described under the umbrella term intellectual property along with patents and trademarks.

I very much doubt that, although I don't know a lot about antipodean law. "Looks" can't be copyrighted. They can, however, be trademarked (which, in many ways, is better than copyright protection, since it never expires).

@Robert Gentel,
Mean or not, I'd like to find a way to help our repetitive poster to think about what she is doing. I suppose I was too abrupt.

Re me, I'll cheerfully admit I've done that, last I remember on a dlowan post. I do that on most topics? I can see that my posts like that would/could be irritating.
