So I decided to amend the text in Part2 and repost it for publication. I am now waiting for HP team's response on the outcome of the amendment. Personally I think its unfair for them to flagged it and to discredit my score rating as my Hubs are linked to each others (and is a continuation of Part1 and 2).
Now what exactly Do YOUR Personality Test results suggest is the answer to this problem that has clearly upset you personally?
If you are Truly Greatstuff... I'm sure that you can be creative enough to NOT copy over the contents of any part to another!
BE CREATIVE - Surely your personality test is able to identify your need to be?
After all, isn't that also what HP is essentially suggesting to you?
I had an issue with a Hub which was essentially a sidebar to another "primary." I wanted it that way so that the "secondary" would be able to print cleanly no matter what, but that, too, is a violation of terms of service (minimum content requirements.)
After a lot of back and forth about it, I eventually moved the "secondary" off Hubpages altogether. The interactions were a bit frustrating, but that's the nature of dealing with "rules"-- creative folks are going to come up with ideas that don't fit them, sometimes. You just have to deal with it.
I don't think that there was anything "unfair" about flagging either my Hub or yours; it seems a reasonable interpretation from the "police" perspective. Inconvenient for us, of course, and possibly incorrect given the contexts, but is there any reason to think that anyone else would have been treated any differently? And as a Hubber, I want protection from having the Hubpages brand degraded by crappy writing or plagiarism--which means somebody has to be the 'bad cop.'
I imagine your rewriting will solve the problem and you can go forward with your project. In the long term, your Hub scores won't be affected by this hiccup. But it may be tomorrow before you hear; at least, that was typically the response time that I experienced.
@doc snow..thank you for the comment and sharing of your experience..I do agree that HP need to be strict in order to maintain quality HubPages. When I got this message from HP (abt my article having duplicate content) my initial impression was that, they didn't read my article and sent out the msg based solely on 'computer scanning of any plagiarism'. Well I guess I learnt from this mistake..being a newbie, we tend to make mistakes. Mine was assuming that taking texts from your own article/hubs are OK..so it isn't.
I would suggest paraphrasing the previous hub briefly, rather than quoting it.
I don't see anything wrong with linking the 2 articles together either that way a reader can view in a 2nd window too
@dame scribe..apparently that's not the case..I too thought that it will be OK. anyway I did the changes, part2 got thru, now waiting for part1 to be approved
The issue is probably more technical than anything else. IMO the best way to go about it is to briefly 'recap' part one in different words. Don't cut and paste.

I have a hub that is doing well (at least for me, as a beginner), but is not monetized because it has one swear word in it. I have written the team twice asking them if they would look at it and remove the filter. They...
