      I looked up this page..this is a bookmarking site and you hub has been bookmarked.  It is not stolen or hijacked as I see it...I may be wrong..
      Looks like you have bookmarked this one yourself.

        What? I have never heard of Utopic. I will be out for the day, but I would like some more information. I don't know if I hit a button inadvertently but I never heard of Utopia until right now.

          I don't need hubpage self promotion. If you bother to notice, I have had over 3000 people per day come to my articles on Business Insider. Shame on you.

          Basically, you have called me a liar when I say I don't know what Utopia is. I don't need you and I hope I never communicate with you again.

          And one more thing. I wrote this hub to include in an ebook. I don't give a rats behind what this hub does in terms of popularity.

          And one more thing, I have been on hubpages a lot longer than you have. I don't need this sort of baloney from you. You owe me an apology. If I was serious about promoting a hub, I would do something stupid like put it in politics where those who are interested in politics would read it.

          If I get anymore flack, without having my question answered, I will just unpublish the hub and put it on one of my personal websites, or since I have it saved for the ebook just keep it off the net.

    When I put "A "Pox" on Ayn Rand's Philosophy and on the Banker Cartel" into Google, your hub came up first and the Utopic one came up second.

    Basically it's just one of those bookmarking browsers like when you use stumbleupon.

    I don't think there's any harm in it (I believe any ad clicks etc would still  be yours) but if you want to outrank it, I'd recommend throwing a few backlinks at the original article.

      Oh, thanks. I did it this morning and it was only the utopia and I thought there was something fishy. So it is like Stumbleupon, I feel better. I will delete the hub from this forum since we have a troll accusing me of sinister self promotion. Thanks for the advice too.

      To late to edit. If there is a moderator here who would take the utopia link down, then go for it. I don't feel like putting up with a bunch of crap from Roberts.

        It's a very newbie idea that posting your own links on the forum will do much in the way of getting you traffic, anyway smile Search engines are where the traffic comes from, not other hubbers.

        Glad I could help.

          YW. I post links to major blogs concerned with economics. I have a lot of sites to promote and it does little to try to promote here. I have been on these forums for a long time and don't promote! In the old days you could put a link to your site if it was in the context of the discussion but I doubt if that is even allowed anymore.

      You are correct. I just don't like pundits who don't know what they are tallking about. All he had to do was ask. I am over it now.
