If you once had stories or articles published by the old Yahoo Contributor site (now defunct), you might find them plagiarized and appearing un-bylined at a few bogus sites: mudmosh.com, miniblob.com, porkyjuice.com. Should you attempt to re-publish one of the articles on HubPages, thinking it removed from the Internet, you likely will receive a duplicate content message and have the item put in limbo or deleted.
By chance, I found several of my old Contributor posts on these sites. I have asked for their removal and hope that happens.
I suspect the violator(s) have or had access to the old Yahoo servers and just blatently appropriated some of the better material.
Meantime, to add insult to injury, when I Google the story or article, its link appears at the top of the search list.
