I wrote a hub called I can scientifically prove God exists. I quoted many views of skeptics and posted them in the hub. Those quoted remarks have made the reject-bot call it duplicate content. Can we get that changed or do I have to erase the views of my critics and re-write it?
If most of your hub has been copied from somewhere else (as in quotes) then it will be deemed duplicate and unpublished.
The solution is to either delete some of the quotes or to write some original content to go with them. No one knows the exact percentage allowed by the robots, but it should be safe to go with 80 to 90% original.
Can you change the entire hubpages automated system... my guess would be no.
Add more original content, remove some of the longer quotes linking to the original content or giving a summary (not a paraphrase) of the arguments might work.
Anyway, it looks like a rewrite for you. Have fun.
