I have 150 hubs, and until the last 24 hours only ever had one pseudo-duplicate flag from the system.
Now Ive had 2 in the last 24 hours - whats up with that?
The first one has been removed, now Im waiting for the 2nd to be removed. It sucks, because it screws the hubscore up until its removed.
Cant you make it so hubscore isnt affected until someone verifies something is a duplicate?
It doesnt seem fair to the rest of us.
I'd be willing to bet that more of the hubs that do trip the duplicate flag are actual duplicates and as such, it's better for the HubPages community that suspect hubs get held back until they can be reviewed. I've only had one hub trip that filter, and it was reviewed so quickly, that slight delay had no adverse effect on it overall.
As to why you got 2 hubs that were flagged, if I were to guess (which is all I can do given the info I have) I'd say it probably has the most to do with your subject choice and then what resources and content you included.

I'm fairly new to HubPages, and I'm trying to figure out how to get my hub scores higher. My first hub did fairly well, along with a couple of my slightly humerous hubs. But my informative ones aren't doing so great....

I have never had this happen to me but I noticed today that I had a hub unpublished because of duplicate content it says... The written content in the hub is NOT duplicate. I wrote it myself. It does have...

I was just checking my stats when I noticed that a hub I published on 1-7-07 has been flagged and incurring a HP penalty for duplicate content. It's my highest earning hub and HP giving me a penalty-and then...

My most recent hub was flagged as duplicate. It is not a duplicate hub but I have published it elsewhere on the net. Is this why it was flagged? If so, can I get it unflagged? How bad does this...
