Is there anyway to inform Writer not to put content copied into table
format before pasting that content into Writer?
First of all, yes to the question: Check out the various Edit > Paste Special (<Ctrl><Shft>V) options, beginning with Paste
Unformatted Text (<Alt><Ctrl><Shft>V), which will always give just a text string, without table or other formatting.
(However, note that in doing so, the "unformatted text" will then adopt the formatting into which it is inserted.)
Also note that, depending on the source context, Paste Special will offer appropriate
table-oriented paste options.
