Long Comment with Copied Content

    Someone posted about a 500 word comment on one of my hubs, which is usually great, only this comment was pretty much just copied from the safety page of a natural health website.  I'm thinking I should delete the comment because it's just duplicate content?  It's really good info but I think in the long run I'd be penalized in the Serps?

    If the information is good and applicable, would it be a good idea to provide a link to the original content?  That is, delete the comment, but provide a link either within your Hub, in a link capsule or in a comment of your own, to the content that was copied.  Not sure whether this is a good idea or not, but maybe something to consider?

    Because I am a crafty fool I would copy the comment, then re-word the comment and then using one of my other hubpage accounts post the comment, so that it's a different comment altogether but re-worded.....either that or use it as a basis for a new hubpage, these comment spammers have to be useful for something right?

      Waynet... you mind works overtime doesn't it...
      I love the idea of making a hub taking  ideas from the comment and linking the two together.

      Thanks  may use it later if I have to!
