Just noticed on Hubs that my valentine hub was stolen. When I checked it out, it was from a five award winning and mr wonderful, who was such a great writer he obviously got there on the back of other peoples work! here's the link:
Nell, I think you should report it to Squidoo I doubt they will want to encourage such behavior.
So how are you dealing with this, Nell? I have about seven hubs that people have also posted and used as their content - in full... Frustrating!
Why aren't you people just filing a notice of infringement with Squidoo? They have a convenient link right on every lens on their site, and HubPages auto-generates the necessary email letter, which turns the whole process into a cut-n-paste task that takes less than a minute.
I have reported it, I just wanted other people to know that he or she was taking our hubs, but yes named and reported!
It looks like most of his lenses have been flagged and locked now, and I just reported the penultimate one.
As Relache says, if you find any content thieves on Squidoo, PLEASE use the Report Abuse button at the bottom of the page, providing a link back to the article that was plagiarized.
You'll be helping yourself, and you'll be helping the honest members on Squidoo as well. Plagiarized articles can quite literally take money away from legitimate ones, since the ad pool is divvied up among the top 85,000 pages each month.
I have not-entirely-altruistic reasons for acting swiftly to report stolen content on that site.
I see this as taken care of by squidoo team. Thanks for reporting.

I've had a massive headache ever since reading about this Squidoo acquisition thing yesterday. I'm not even going to get into whether I think it is a good idea or not. It doesn't matter what I think. The deal is done so...

I awoke this morning to discover that some unscrupulous idiot had stolen my recent brilliant award winning Hub of the Day, "How to ride the Tube in London", and posted it to Squidoo. The guy goes by the same...
