comment 'I eat kittens before ponies' vs 'I eat kittens before I eat ponies'
I actually like @SvenYargs comment and would accept is an answer, as it shows how #1 for both sentences is ambiguous, which would lead me to pick #2 for sentence 1 and #3 for sentence 2 (or completely reword the sentences).

Here's an example showing why it's reasonable to infer that the site is listing all of the copula verbs: If I said, "the following are the ingredients for chocolate cake: x, y, z", it is reasonable to assume that those are ALL of the ingredients needed for chocolate cake.

The link you provided claims that there is a definitive list of copula verbs,and 'do' is not in it. It seems odd to provide the link and then claim that the link that you provided is not authoritative. In addition, "I'm doing good" seems to express the idea of doing things that are morally good (or good for the target of the good being done). For example, a 'do-gooder' (like Superman) could accurately say, "I'm doing good."

Note: I'm not asking about "I am (word)." I am asking about 'I am doing (word)."

the verb 'do' is not listed in the list of 'principal copula verbs in English that can be used to connect the subject to an adjective.'
