      Jimmy's a hero for catching this! I had no idea that "writer" had stolen my content.

      Thanks for this, I was going to follow that plagerer but now have found a better resource for learning my way around on here.

      That was interesting, reading the same article twice in a short space of time. Some users just need a big red ban button on their profile for all to use.

    Thanks to everyone for the support! It's so nice to know that have Hubbers have my back. I appreciate everyone who left comments on the bogus hub telling the guy what a thief he is. :-)

    I also flagged the hub and his profile - with so many flags I'm pretty sure we won't be seeing that particular profile name around.

      The hub is unpublished now. I am sad to see that others would steal someone's work. I once found a copy of a poem I had written on a blog I stopped by to read one day. I had written it and posted in many years ago and had forgotten some of the words, so when I came across this particular blog and was reading them poem, I was thinking "why does this sound so familiar?" I did a search online and found the poem I had published so many years earlier! What was worse is the person had a full explanation for how the poem was written and what she was thinking at the time. It was absolutely astonishing! But I guess this is the risk we take by sharing online. It is nice to see there are many hubbers who pay attention and notice. I also like that we are able to flag content to keep the community valuable and with a good reputation. I have seen a few that are from kids with only pictures of themselves and are written in all lowercase with punctuation and didn't realize we were able to flag for such things. Nice to know now after being in the forums for a bit.
