    While doing some civil war-era research, I ran across pages with urls like the following:

    http hmm/14thamendment.harpweek.com/HubPages/CommentaryPage.asp?Commentary=03Passage

    There are a bunch of these pages on the web with HubPages in the url (Google harpweek hubpages). However, HubPages is not mentioned in the text or anywhere on the page.

    Harpweek provides libraries access to their database of digitized text and images of Harper's Weekly, 1857-1912. I'm just curious to know what the relationship is with HubPages.

      I think they just happen to have called one of their directories "hubpages"

    Certainly one of the many site scrapers.
