Has this happened to anyone else? My hub was flagged as duplicate content because someone on wordpress copied and pasted the hub I wrote into their blog.
So frustrated! I hope this isn't a common occurrence. I am shocked that it happened to my first hub ever.
that's messed up. OFF with their heads.
How dare they!! Why if anyone stole my hub, I'd pounce right on their head and chew off their ears! We spend so much effort writing quality hubs and it sucks for your hub to be flagged because of some butt who's too lazy to write his own! Argh
O yes, it happens I'm still waiting for a site to remove scraped content from one of my Hubs - off their site there's a link to report to Google of scraped content on one of these forums but they don't remove the content, HP usually detects copies early on so least you get a heads up.
Notify the HubPages staff ASAP, so they will take the duplicate label off of your hub, then file the necessary reports with Google....
I totally understand your frustration! Although no violations are directed at me, I have been notified that another site has stolen my content! Either way, thiefs suck!
