I just had a hub unpublished because I had quoted a paragraph from another website. I had the paragraph in blockquotes and a link underneath to the source. Unpublishing seems like a really extreme reaction and I once again find myself extremely angry at Hubpages. It's the second time this has happened. So, how much can you quote from someone else without these ridiculous automated systems picking it up falsely as a duplicate rather than a quote?
How much of your own text did you have in the article? I got a duplicate once because I posted a speech in it's entirety. I cut it down to one paragraph and wrote more text and it was accepted.
oh that's too bad...i don't know the answer...hopefully hub staff will see your thread or send them a message
