I posted an extensive authobiographical piece on Casblanca out of NYC. I just opened my own account and reposted it one my site and it comes up as duplicate. I am rewriting as it needed it anyway but I'd like it deleted from his, and I want Hubpages affiliates to stop calling it a duplicate. Any war stories?
A duplicate just means an exact or near exact copy exists out there. HubPages is really clear about why they show this notification.
If you had taken the time to either remove your first copy, or change the 2nd one more BEFORE you posted it, you wouldn't have this problem.
It's your own fault that your piece shows as a duplicate. Buck up and take it like a Marine.

I was on another thread and someone said many people sign up on HubPages, but very few go on to write a substantial number of quality Hubs.I wonder why this is and what HubPages can do to encourage people to stay on and...
