Have you ever had someone on SOH steal a question you have used or adapted their own question based on a suggestion you have given?

Yes, he has, but I didn't mind. He had different followers and wanted to spread a good question.

It wasn't stealing, no. I've had people ask questions similar or because of my question - but come on.. It's not the end of the world. It's more of a compliment to me.

Someone used one of my questions yesterday - I was honored - they gave me credit

Being I've only posted approx 6 questions, I doubt it. Given the amount of users, I would assume some duplicate questions exist. I would also assume the duplication wasn't intentional.

Sometimes someone likes a question and they repost it for their followers - usually they will say "inspired by" or something like that

Veritas. It ended up getting featured too. The little bastard.

I have been thinking of a question (I'm a ponder/planner) and someone else post it within the hour. 5-6 times this last week...

I hope so, but I wouldn't use the word steal.

Someone said someone else stole, this was inspired by someone else

So you stole it? ;)
I'm more interested in the results than the recognition. If someone gives me credit, I think it's really cool, but if they reword it and leave me out, I still get the results and all is good, maybe better results.

Is it really that big a deal? Feel flattered.

I think that I would be irritated because my questions are so out there you would have to actually steal my question.
