Here I report a subjectively funny case of a person who posts a wall of text over and over, since at least two years, to answer questions. He does modify it in order to adapt it to the asked question, so one might argue that what he does is entirely legitimate. I personally think that in this case, what would be better suited, is a redirect to his own answer and stating that the case applies for the current question.
What's also funny is that sometimes his answer is widely negatively viewed, whilst other times it is quite positively viewed, but that's another story.
I was wondering whether such a behavior (that one may call "bottish", from robot behavior) is accepted/tolerated. Is it?
For starters, here are nine of his answers that are similar:
- Energy Levels and Photons Absorption
- What makes the pre-slit photon detector act differently than air in a which way double slit experiment?
- Acceleration of photon
- Could light bounce infinitely?
- Concerning the passage of light through a glass medium and it's apparent re-acceleration, is the absorption explanation supported by evidence?
- When a photon hits a moving atom and stops it, why do we take momentum of photon rather than energy to calculate the change in motion of atom?
- In refraction how does light interact with electrons if it is not absorbed?
- What is light’s behavior in a medium?
- Electron Absorbing a Photon.
Google returns more of such of his answers, but I think nine examples is enough.
Edit: Update, since the top answer doesn't really answer the question but instead focuses on the slight differences between each post rather than on the copied and pasted text. Here is a case of a perfect copy and paste of the same answer (a wall of text) in 14 different questions (within 9 minutes): https://physics.stackexchange.com/users/207730/ten1o?tab=answers.
