Topic - Prospective employers and online application forms

The Green Giant - on 18 Jul 2013
It just occurred to me that it has taken me nearly 3 weeks to apply to one position, mainly due to other commitments. In the meantime I have received 3 emails from the company, kindly reminding me that I have yet to finish the application form.

Does this mean that the company can see the way in which I have filled in the form? Spent a certain amount of time on this, and on that. Or just that I've copied and pasted it all in? Where I decided to skip the first time round?

I suspect all these actions could be easily perceived in different ways by the potential employers, do you reckon they would take it into account (if they do have access to this information)? If they do, do we need to be more careful while filling these forms in? Showing 'keeness' for the position through quick filling in and sending, but not too quick that its obviously copy and paste?

Have I thought about this too much?
