VIM : copy and paste reformats the text with lots of spaces

When I paste a piece of code or text from a copy (or the clipboard), lots of extra spaces are added at the start of each new line.

The solution is to turn off the autoindent:

:set paste

After you pasted your code, turn off the paste-mode:

:set nopaste
