Good question, I have seen this problem when eg. the previous line is 
commented and pasting information would add comments to the pasted text 

There is a mode you can enable for copy&pasting in vim, but I always have 
to look it up in the online help myself :-/ In vim do ':h paste' and 
you'll see how it works:

     :set paste
     :set nopaste

There's also a pastetoggle option to bind to a key of your choice if 
you're into that (I try to not depend on too much customization myself 
because I do not always work on systems with users I control myself
