    I just received this email from a new member. What’s your take on it?
    Thank you an advance for any advice.

    Hi Madison,

    Thanks for your comment on the hub I wrote in response to your question.

    I'm new to HP so I'm not sure of the standard procedures. I'd like to link to your site through the hub. Is that okay with you? If so, I'll do a bit of editing and will republish the hub with the link to your site and I'll further explain how your 'mistake' was a benefit to you.

    Thanks so much! I'm looking forward to your response.

      My curious nature leads me to ask one question about this situation.  What kind of fool do they think you are? roll

      my take is that this person is trying to self-promote at your expense.

    sounds more like someone looking to rewrite your hub with your approval, skirting copyright stuff.

    I get a mixed message from this statement. I'd have to read the hub & comment.

      I agree. 

      Madison, how do you feel about writing this Hubber to ask for clarification? 

      I could interpret the email to mean that the Hubber wants to link to your "site" from his / her own Hub, which he / she wants to rewrite in some way to benefit YOU.

        --------
        I agree with their suggestions.  Another thing you can do is that you can go back to his/ her profile page. Check out if you have made any comments. He might want to rewrite his hub but it would also be possible that he just want to reiterate that he doesn't agree with you. Just give him first the benefit of the doubt before you make your final decision.
        Have a good day!

    the hubber thanked you for a comment, on a hub the other hubber wrote. Am I reading that right? ...Say, your welcome.
    I dont understand, what was “your mistake”?

    It doesn't sound too bad to me, depending on what your question was that he/she answered. They're asking for your okay before elaborating on your situation in the reworked hub.
