    Short answer - NO

    Cutting and pasting parts of your hubs into forums and comment sections is SPAMMING and could get your account cancelled.

    Cutting and pasting info from other websites into forums and comment sections is SPAMMING and could get your account cancelled.

    Probably the best thing to do is paraphrase what you have already written, or say something like, I wrote a hub about that. Then you can give the title of your hub, but NO link to it.

    DO NOT add links to your hubs in comments or forums. Most people will delete comments with links in them.

    ...and links to your hubs are not allowed forum posts except in the "Extreme Makeover" forum.

    HP doesn't like copied content, so you may well find your hubs being flagged, even though it is your own work you are copying.

    The long answer is also NO. The other hubbers will clobber you.
