Also, your hub is plagiarized. No wonder the formatting is weird. You just copypasted it.

Yep, that's a good point too. Sorry gonna have to flag the hub.
How in the world did you know this?? Just curious....
My warning sign was the formatting. Copy Pasting often leads to bad formatting as different sites use different kinds of whitespacing and acceptable bullets and such. Besides, what kind of hubber doesn't notice that over 20 sentences have line breaks in the middle? However, the true tell was when I noticed one of the sentences said "on the next page". This seemed odd as HP doesn't use pages and this hub wasn't part of a series.
So I chose a random paragraph (that wasn't the intro. Intro had bad grammar and acceptable formatting. The rest of the hub had ok grammar and poor formatting. Clearly the intro was written differently). I googled it and it showed up as the first result.
You are pretty darn sharp! I just looked and it appears the Hub is no longer there. With all the robots and crawlers I read about that check for these kinds of things, wouldn't you think it would have been found out before you did?
Maybe hubpages's checker has difficulties checking pdf results?
"Its" is a possessive, "It's" is a contraction of it is... You have used them incorrectly in several places.
It is frowned upon to use "but" to start a sentence.
"As a house" sounds awkward, you should use "as a group".
It should be "housemates" rather than "house mates".
You missed a comma after "however".
There is an odd paragraph break in the second section... and you might want to say "write them down" rather than "write them up". One implies recording the rules, the other implies being disciplined for breaking rules.
Nonnegotiable is the word you are looking for. Not-Negotiable is poor usage. BTW, I think the last paragraph under the heading should be a list or at least have a colon. Random capitalization after an ellipses (which shouldn't be used in formal written language anyway unless you are quoting) followed by a dash (when it should be a colon) effects readability.
Under the negotiable heading, I don't see a complete sentence one. If you are making a list you should bullet it. Right now it just looks like a random pile of words.
Some other things: Numbers under 10 should be written out. Ain't isn't appropriate in formal writing. Punctuation is a good thing.
If you clean it up it should be an acceptable hub.
What the heck is WRONG with these people?
Ok, someione is foolish (choose your word) enough to steal content. How "foolish" do you have to be to look for advice on it?
I dunno. It boggles the mind.
I don't think it was a joke because the earliest comment on the hub is from 13 days ago. This means he wrote the hub at least 13 days ago, well before the incident happened. So even though he started the thread as a joke, this hub was very much created with plagiarism in mind.
I'm also sad to see the hub is back up (it was taken down). I *think* it was edited slightly at the beginning, but it's still mostly duplicate content.
I don't understand how a person with over 300 hubs who has been a member for 4 years can be ok with writing a plagiarized hub - he should know better and honestly, it makes me worried about his other hubs.
