I accept a revue could be done on a site that uses info already in the public domain but if the site is part of a whole informational package that someone is putting together in a particular niche, I think its unfair to punish the site with a low score. It should be considered on the basis that is part of a series.
I'm not sure exactly what you're asking. Are you referring to the duplicate penalty to Hubscore?
I have a similar question, if I understood the original question. A while ago, I got one of those chain mail emails with a series of very poignant photographs related to the war in Iraq. Rather than pass it along to people in my email contacts, I decided to create a hub, figuring that more people would read it as a hub than would read it as an email. It turned out, I was right. Since I published it, this has been one of my most popular hubs. Yet, because it was not original copy, my hubscore has always been very low.
This kind of bothered me, so over time I have written some supplementary material on the same theme, this time original material. Most recently, yesterday, I wrote captions under each photograph, describing the way each photo makes me feel. Despite these additions, the hub score remains at or near the bottom of all my hubs.
So my question is, once a hub has been determined to be non-original, is it forever labeled such, and doomed to a low hub score? Or can a hub be re-evaluated?

I'm wondering this in terms of Hubs being stolen and published elsewhere. Let's say a Hub is stolen, meaning it is copied and published on another site, and you are going to file to have it removed or something along...

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or...
