I'm not very active in Hubpages, but it's kind of stressing whenever I publish a new hub I always get a 'warning' mail. Today I just got a 'duplicate' warning on one of my hub that has just been published two days ago (now the hub is unpublished/ suspended).
However I see many hubbers create lots of hubs with duplicated contents, literally, word per word. It makes me wonder why their hubs are still published.
Below is some excerpts of the warning email from hubpages:
Problem: Duplicate content, including:
* Text that appears in whole or large part on another site.
* Text that already appears in whole or large part on HubPages
Duplicating other people stuff is stealing - simple to see I think.
Duplicating your own stuff is pointless unless you are pumping some commodity on different sites - then Google frowns on it to the point of penalising it and the site you are on.
If you find other duplicate content then definately report it.
The new rules have made it clear that HubPages are not allowing content from other sites to be published ( in whole or part), even if it is yours. We really need to create content for HubPages exclusively. That is not only good for the site but for individual hubbers too.
HubPages is about producing original content. Other entities, like Google, also puts down duplicate content. Copying other people's work is often viewed by many as stealing and it's just not worth it. If you notice that other hubbers have duplicate content, then it's everyone's best interest to report them. Please do take care and I wish you well.

I know hubpages prohibits writers from having duplicate content. My problem is understanding what that exactly means. I heard from many that it means writers can't publish content here that already exists elsewhere, but...
