The curious case of Top-Floor

I noticed a Reddit user named Top-Floor had been submitting a whole bunch of links to that Screenhits.info domain.  And it turns out that a lot of Top-Floor's comments were copied-and-pasted from other Reddit threads.  Top-Floor's account is now suspended, but I wanted to document these anyway.

Here is a comment he made in /r/AskReddit in response to the question, "How did you meet your now-best friend?":
I met mine during a class concert. We weren't allowed to leave the practise zone until after the concert finished. I walked up to her and said "I really don't want to be here." She later said the reason we became friends is because I was the only person not to mention her British accent and ask her to say "Harry Potter"
But that exact same response was written back on June 3, 2016 by user Scatteredheroes, in response to the question "How did you meet your best friend?"

Another time, Top-Floor answered the question "How have you gotten out of a ticket?" by saying:
Fought it in court: Judge: The ticket says you were going 81 miles per hour in a 70. Me: That's what the ticket says, your honor. Judge: It also says you drive a Geo Metro? Me: Correct, your honor. Judge: There's no way you were doing 81 in that car. Case dismissed.
Yet that exact same response was written back on August 6, 2015, by user mopeygoff, in response to the question: "Reddit, how have you gotten out of getting a speeding ticket?"

Very strange.
