Can people tell if you flagged their hub?

    I don't get a thrill from being a tattle tail, please understand. But if you flag a hub, can that person somehow find out that you flagged it? Or is it anonymous?

    Vezpa,
    It is anonymous however when flagging make certain that you are definitely doing the right thing. Sometimes e-mailing them directly and expressing your concerns would in some cases be more appropriate. smile

      But possibly maybe more dangerous given the amount of damage some hubbers have had when their adsense codes have been stolen and used inappropriately - if the hub is substandard, spam etc just flag it - the admins will decide

    Oh alright.
    I was just curious, oh and believe me, I'd let that person know and would make sure I wasn't making a mistake. Thanks again! smile

    Its really funny you should ask that........since your article on manx cats is taken word for word from the published book

    Manx cats by Karen Commings

    http://books.google.com/books?id=6sEUKj … t#PPA12,M1

    Maybe you thought .pdf's were not searchable?

    So why would you run around flag happy when your just a one week old thief?

    And then bernes mountain dogs is copied from wikipedia - as their are the occasional typo - it would seem as you actually retyped it...so good for you

    rather than retype the .pdf book you stole from google,,,,you could have printed the page, then scanned it through OCR - that would have been easier.

    So why is it that you want to flag people

    (my bad I  was TA for a while and newspaper editor - so I tend to find plagiarism a little more criminal than the average fella)

    I would flag you....but its not really worth the effort of clicking

    more likely the OP wants to find out who flagged him or her (-:

      That is an interesting insight. You must be onehekuva barrister.

    Sorry, was it pointing out the blindingly obvious? I tend to do that.

    "Blindingly obvious"  may not be apparent to some of us who occasionally blink. 
    It was enlightening to me.  Thank you.

    (I rarely deal in sarcasm, if that is what you were thinking.)

      I was, my apologies. When I do state the blindingly obvious, do let me know (-:

    wow.  busted. 

    It wasn't that obvious, I didn't think of it.  Then again, I am not that bright.
