One of my recent Hubs triggered the duplicates filter because of the quoted matter in the body. I was shown the message below on the hub.
CERTIFIED ORIGINAL: This Hub has been granted an exception to the HubPages duplicate content penalty.

Edit your hub and then use the "Submit For Publication" button to request a review.

I am doing a 20 "such and such" quotes about "such and such" hub. I even went back in after they marked it duplicate and made sure 400 of the words are my words, even though I know people googling it...

Yesterday, one of my Hubs was unpublished and sent to me for revision because it was considered "duplicate content". It was due to an honest mistake and I truly believe I have fixed it; but it is now sitting...
