    This man plagiarised my hub, and put it on his website. I believe that he is on twitter so that he can steal others too! nice bloke! And he is advertising a book that he has 'written' not sure what its about, but I would imagine a lot of copy and paste went on!
    Just search for Neil Warner at twitter!

      Are you sure that's his actual picture? He could have stolen the identity too for all you know. So where is the rally so we can egg this guy?

        Hi, just put his name up on twitter and it will take you to his page. I found him on his personal site, when I looked up one of my hubs, he copied it exactly, then changed a couple of words so that he wouldn't get caught! on the top of his personal site, it had a twitter link! stupid man! so I went on a tried to find other peoples but he has too many twitters going. Grrr!

          Hi Nell, how did you find out he'd stolen your writing? I'd hate to think that happens to people but I guess it's easy to do.

            Hi, Shinkicker, (great name lol) I have been on the plagiarise hunt ever since I spotted one of my hubs repeated 6 times! then I found another hub, same thing, just type in your hub title in the google search box at top of your screen, you will be amazed at what pops up! once, twice, three.....etc and so on!

        Wasn't this guy in Dallas or a program like it? I think he is an actor.

          Hi, he could well be, he does look a bit to clean cut to be genuine! lol unless its just me getting to suspicious! I actually recieved an email from another copier, who said that they recieve our hubs and other stuff through an automatic service and they don't know anything about it! any idea if thats true? I wonder!

      I don't know him, but it looks like it, maybe he is a complete scam! His personal site is a wordpress site, called Growing Self Esteem! good name for someone trying to knock you down!


      Here's his link to the site!

        Nell, I know you're not in the US.  That guy (Mitt Romney, above) was governor of Massachusetts awhile back.   lol    I may not want him as US president, but I don't think he's stealing Internet stuff.   lol  lol  (As for that guy in the first picture - whole-nother thing.   smile  )

    Since joining HubPages, there have been so many posts concerning stolen work, that I am afraid to post anymore than the one I have already published.  This is a major problem with the Internet.  I would never check to see if anything of mine had been copied, because there seems little that can be done if it has.

    Nell, it is a major problem online but I am like one of the previous posters in that I have never checked for plagiarism - it's better I don't know. Why? If I found someone stealing my content, you can bet your life they would regret it more than anything else they had ever done in their life before. I would not only assume their identity, I would actively make them guilty of every disgusting crime (within reason!) that you can imagine. I would post their name, details, photos and everything I could obtain on every dodgy site around the Web (very, very discreetly wink ) and be sure to state their confirmed beliefs to be the absolute opposite of whatever they have declared. I would never let go - the only escape from my hitlist is when I die! smile

      Bad karma Gordon! It'll come back and bite you.

      Do it all formally - email webmaster, then dmca notice to the webmaster, then if that doesn't work, report them to Google.

    Besides typing in the title of your Hub (not always going to get anything), there's also figuring out which couple of lines to search in quotes (pretty unrealistic and impractical, but that's what it would take).  There's also typing in your new subdomain.  I had some eye-opening go on when I did that too.  I got so I don't really want to know either.   mad

      yes I think the best thing to do is forget it, but make sure each hub has a copyright note and your name, especially if you put it in the actual hub itself, someone who copies it may just not see it, hopefully! thanks

    This bottom feeder seems to be calling himself confront4love on twitter now? And he has another site called creativeconflicts com.
    Maybe we should all check there as well?

    So maybe you have already spooked him Nell? He seems to have more identities than a ........? (feel free to fill in the dots!)

    Yeah everyone confront4love aka Neil Warner is a plagarist, a content thief!

    this is the link to the articles he purports to have written on this site if you want to check if any are yours - have put a space in because I don't want him to get a free backlink!

      I love his guarantee:

      "100% Privacy Warranteed"

      Looks like an autoblog, probably powered by a wordpress plugin.

        I wonder how many he has got scattered across the web?

          Even more surprisingly, he seems to have somehow retained a PR 1 despite the Panda update.

          Autoblogging only really works with an empire, so I'm guessing LOTS.

    It's sad people don't have the inspiration to create their own hubs, so they rip other people's.

    Nell, well done for tracking down someone who stole your hub. The picture is almost certainly of someone else. No scammer would allow themselves to be so easily identified.I have had two direct messages to my email account from twitter - both from hubbers who are also on twitter. I clicked on the message and was warned not to proceed.Spyware and identity and bank fraud suspected. The emails came from hubbers I trust (3 years or more membership) The email also had their avatar - real photos. I was shocked before I realised they too were victims.Their reputations could be ruined if people think they are scamming.
