Similarity between these Profiles?

    Recently I came to visit these profiles of our fellow hubbers.

    Hubber-2009 and Kmachine..

    http://hubpages.com/profile/kmachine

    http://hubpages.com/profile/hubber-2009

    Their profile images looks like same and I think that they may be the same person..

    What is your opinion..?

      I think your analysis is deeply flawed. 

      The pics are not the same, they just both happen to be eyes.  The two people are from different countries, and are building vastly different types of Hubs.

    Since it is not a violation of HP TOS to have multiple accounts why does it matter?

      I too know that it is not a violation for having multiple ids.

      But the coincidence with the profile picture provoked me this thought..

    You did discover one article spinner though - kmachine is certainly writing with a machine - the profile image similarity isnt that amazing

    the country doesnt matter, its user generated

    Hubber2009 is a article spinner also - or a translate user, Ive flagged article spinners before  but nothing was ever done.

    Im actually working on an article for one of my sites about how one can use article spinners - you gave me two more examples of long time HP users who use such writing tools, it must be acceptable. Anyone, in this industry can recognize it immediately

      oops,  not "how to use article spinners" but rather "how prevalent the use of article spinners is"

        Ignoring the thread-starter, you are targetting me - what does it say?

        Well, you know better!!

      yes i'd say they are all the same person, Trsmd, hubber-2009 and possibly kmachine. Self promotion isn't it a wonderful thing!

    What's an article spinner?

    1. Aficionada profile image93
      Aficionadaposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Paula - I've only heard about them, so others may explain this better.  I think that an article spinner is a kind of computer software that takes articles written by others and does some "rewrites" to make it look like it is original content - for the sake of the search engines.  But the language ends up being rather distorted and goofy, honestly.  I think sometimes the article spinner will add extra keywords to try to catch the attention of the search engines - again, goofy sounding.

    Since the subject came up - do those of you who do not use article spinners vote down the articles you read that are obviously spun?  Or is that an insufficient reason for voting down?

      If they are plainly spun, I flag them.

    Lovesloveposted 6 years ago

    Some people would rather use a  picture of something random..like me..I use a Rose as my name is Loveslove and a rose is a symbol of love...likewise these 2 people you refer to probably do the same,use a picture instead of a photo and just by coincidence chose similar pictures ...whats the ptoblem ?

      The thread-starter wanted publicity, that's it tongue
