I just got done writing this LOOOOOONG hub that was about 3,000+ words and it was all from my own notes on a documentary I saw and some other information added in there... so I was writing the hub from my own words, the notes, into my own words once again, the hub.
I had the window open a long time, maybe that's part of the problem, but when I went to publish it... it said that a lot of my content was on other pages?
So I figured I'd go through, copy and paste the contents of a text capsule into Word, then delete it and try to publish the hub... good idea, right? It'd tell me right away which capsule had the "guilty" content in it.
So I started with the first capsule that had the introduction in it... copy, paste, delete, publish... it worked! It published it without any duplicate content error!
So I decided to check and see if that capsule really was a problem and popped it right back in, and saved it... no duplicate content warning?
So... was the first warning a faulty warning? Or what's up?
Sounds like it was a hiccup. That's a technical term.
I hope so... I don't want to have to try to re-write a hub of that length haha
If it does happen again, it will probably be a separate issue and may mean that it was stolen.
Edit: So don't go re-writing it.
Yeah I'm not planning on re-writing it... I'll just wait and see.
If it pops up again I guess I'll start editing that intro and go from there... I have already dealt with people stealing my content; it's not fun having to contact them to take it down.

Curious--If I were to write a Hub about--and featuring--famous quotations, would the quotes trip the duplicate content warning?
