I don't copy and paste code from Stack Overflow nowadays, but earlier in my career, I certainly did to get something to "work". However, this is detrimental to your own learning in my opinion.

I definitely Google a lot of different things on a daily basis and read a lot of answers from Stack Overflow. However, I prefer to understand the answer given and compare it to others. This allows me to implement my own interpretation that is often the combination of multiple answers.
